Today when i got up in the morning  i was so confused because i didnt know what to pack in kids lunch box.When i checked in the fridge only tomatoes and capsicum was there. And i don't have  much time to sit  back and think coz its already 5 and by 6 we have to go to drop them to school.So without wasting any more time i started chopping tomatoes and capsicum and this dish came to my mind.I named this dish Tomcapsico RELISH.
