Peanut Chutney

Peanut chutney is a simple chutney and makes great accompainment to idly, dosa, upma and pongal. It is my favorite chutney and I make it very often.. When served with rice it should have a thick consistency and a bit dilute for idlis and dosas . Hot rice, ghee and peanut chutney is like feast for us! Here I have prepared a simple chutney with raw peanuts and you can prepare this during Ekadesi by eliminating mustard,urad dal, Asafoetida .Worth a shot – here goes the recipe.

1 cup peanuts
5 Red Chillies- adjust to your taste
Tamarind lemon sized
Fresh Coconut - 2 Tbs
Curry Leaves - 4 to 5
Salt to taste
For Seasoning:
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp urad dal (white lentils)
1/4 tsp Cumin Seeds
Asafoetida - a pinch
4 curry leaves
1 tsp Olive oil

Dry roast the peanuts in a pan for few minutes along with Curry leaves,Fresh Grated Coconut,Red Chillies.Turn off the fire when you see the peanuts turn to golden brown color. Cool it down and blend it into a smooth paste by adding little tamarind.Heat oil in a pan. Once the mustard crackles, remove from heat and pour it to the chutney.

Note : I use cumin seeds & curry leaves on Ekadesi for seasoning...
