Peanut Chutney... my mil style

Peanut chutney is yummy. Everything about this is ok except for the high cholesterol improving characteristics :). Nevertheless whatever be the reason it can never be off the dosa clinging menu for a long while. Yes it is so scrumptious that i have to make it leaving no other choice. My kids love it too so now its an excuse for me to make it more often. I keep it away from my hubby's plate though... dont want him to eat those extra calories when he's wanting to shed off some ;)

This one is similar to the other one i make but has a hint of coconut in it which gets a little different and a little special with extra calories 

Serves... 4 ppl
Serve option... Idli / Dosa

This is what u'll need....

Peanut - 1/2 cup
Coconut - 1/2 of one half
Urad dal - 2 tbspn
Red chillies - 6-7 
Tamarind - a bit couple of pellets
Garlic - 1 clove
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 tspn

Here is the stir....
  • Heat a pan and fry the peanuts without adding any oil. Once they turn golden transfer them to another bowl and let it cool. When it cools down, the peanuts get their crispiness intact which makes it easier to grind them
  • Pour oil in a pan and add urad dal to it. Fry it on medium flame until golden brown. Dont turn it too dark else they loose their flavor. Keep this aside and then add red chillies to the pan. Fry for a minute or little more

  • Cut coconut into small slices and toss them into the pan along with garlic clove. Also throw in tamarind for a quick stir
  • Let everything cool down and then transfer them into a mixie/blender jar. Add salt to suit your taste
  • Grind them coarse and serve it with hot idli/dosa

  • Use very little tamarind. It is used to get just a little tang
  • Cool the peanut before grinding. It helps in making the process a lot faster
  • Seems like a lot of red chillies but groundnut usually takes off the spiciness away. Also coconut takes the bite off
