Peanut Chutney / Groundnut Chutney

Indian condiments are always a winner!! We almost have a side dish or two for all our main courses and they sometime become the highlight over beating the main course of meal. 

The peanut chutney is our home favorite and it for sure over beats the taste of soft idlies and this chutney is temptation factor to make idlies at times :)

The smooth buttery texture of the peanuts along with coconut and other spices is a hit recipe for sure :)

Dry roast the peanuts on a pan and allow it to come to room temperature. Remove the skin by rubbing them within your palms. 

Take a tsp of oil in a pan and fry the green chillies in low flame for three minutes. 

Now drop the peanuts, coconut, fried gram, tamarind paste and salt into the mixie and grind into smooth paste. 

Finally season with mustard and curry leaves. 

Delicious and simple peanut chutney is ready. Serve it with hot idlies.
