Peanut chutney is usually accompanied with south Indian dishes such as idli, dosa, appe etc.( i like eating it with parathas too…). I have added chana dal too which gives it a good taste.
Peanuts: 1/2 cup
Urad dal: 1 tbsp
Oil: 1 tbsp
Dry red chili: 1
Salt: to taste
Sesame seeds: 1/4 tbsp
Curry leaves: 4-5
Green chili: 1 chopped
Ginger: 1/2 inch piece
Rai or mustard seeds: 1 tsp
Hing: a pinch
1. Dry roast peanuts until light golden and allow them to cool.
2. Put oil in a kadai. Add curry leaves,mustard seeds or rai, dry red chilli . When rai starts to crackle add heeng, sesame seeds or til, ginger, urad dal and green chili. Saute and switch off the flame.
