Peanut chutney is all time favourite of mine and i prepare it very often in my home.It is great with breakfast dishes like idli,upma,dosa and pongal.I never add tamarind to my chutney.Recipe i posted below is the most simpliest way of making Peanut Chutney and it is delicious too.We never get bored of this chutney though we eat it regularly.
Peanuts or Ground nuts -1/4 cup
Green chilli -3(slitted)
Garlic -2 cloves(minced)
oil -2 tsp
Salt as required
For the Popu:
Mustard seeds -1/4 tsp
Red chilli -2
Curry leaves -4
1.Fry the peanuts in a kadai without adding oil untill it changes its colour(u can see some black spots on the peanuts at this time).Remove from heat and peel the skin off when it is cool.
2.In the same kadai add 2 tsp of oil, fry the green chilli and minced garlic and keep them aside.Use the remaining oil for tadka.
3.Grind fried peanuts,green chilli and garlic to smooth paste by adding salt and water.
4.Now heat the remaining oil then add mustard seeds,red chilli,curry leaves and pour it over the chutney.
Serve it with idli,dosa,upma.I can assure u that it tastes good.Please post ur comments on this recipe.
