I have never been liking peanuts until I started having this chutney. My hubby loves peanuts on the other hand. When ever we are on flight or any trips his major snack would be roasted peanuts. I somehow never developed that liking for peanuts. When I saw so many people discussing on this chutney, I felt I should give it a try some time. And I absolutely loved this chutney. Of all the chutney’s I prepare peanuts chutney has now become my favorite :) A very simple chutney and goes well with any South Indian breakfast. I have adapted this recipe from vahchef. Ingredients: Roasted Unsalted Peanuts : 1/2 cup Red chili Powder : 1 1/2 teaspoon Tamarind paste : 1 teaspoon Water : as per need Salt : as per need Mustard Seeds : 1/2 teaspoon Urad dal : 1/2 teaspoon Curry Leaves : Few Asafoetida : 1/2 teaspoon Cumin Seeds : 1/2 teaspoon Oil : 1 teaspoon Method: In a pan, heat half a teaspoon of oil, when hot add the roasted peanuts. Saute well for 3 to 4 mins. Soak tamarind in water and make juice. When it turn slight golden brown, stop heat and add red chili powder, tamarind juice. Allow it to cool. Next in a blender/mixer, add the above along with salt , water and grind it to chutney consistency. In a small pan, heat remaining oil. When hot add mustard seeds, urad dal, cumin seeds, asafoetida. Let it splutter. Finally add curry leaves and stop, add this is to the ground chutney. You can serve this with Idli/Dosa, Upma, pongal.
