Peanut/Groundnut Chutney

This is the first time I made peanut chutney at home..It can be served with dosas,idli,adai and also with rice..When served with rice it should have a thick consistency and a bit dilute for idlies and dosas


Peanuts - 1 cup
Red chilies - 4
Onion (small sized) - diced
Garlic - 2 pods
Tamarind paste - 2 teaspoons
Mustard seeds,Cumin seeds,Urad dhall - 1 teaspoon each
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Salt to taste


In a pan roast the peanuts for about 5 minutes in low flame until you get the smell of the peanuts..They should be roasted well..Allow them to cool and remove the skin from the peanuts..
Add a little oil in a vessel and saute the onion,garlic and red chillies for a minute..
Allow the mixture to cool..It should come to room temperature..
Take the peanuts,cooled onions,garlic,chillies,tamarind paste,salt in a blender..Add one cup of water and grind to a smooth paste..
Do the tempering with the mustard,urad dhall,cumin seeds and curry leaves and add it to the ground paste..
Chutney is ready!

Sending this to Spicy Fiery Chutney event!
