Peanut Chutney

Chutneys usually accompany the breakfast dishes like dosas, idlis, upmas etc. There are many varieties when it comes to chutneys. Peanut chutney is one among them which is simple to make, tastes delicious and really don’t need many ingredients to prepare. Roasted peanuts are used to make this chutney and if you keep peanuts roasted beforehand, you can make this in a jiffy.

Ingredients:
Peanuts - 1 Cup
Green chillies - 4-5
Salt - 1 tsp or accordingly
Oil - 2 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
A few curry leaves

Dry roast the peanuts on a medium flame (approximately for 10 minutes) till the peanuts turn light brown in color. The peanut chutney tastes good if they are properly roasted. (Chutney made using under roasted peanuts tastes like ground raw peanuts mixed with water and nobody would like to eat that). Cool and remove the peanut skins. (You can do this by rubbing peanuts between your palms).
Grind the peanuts, chillies and salt along with required amount of water in a blender. Remove and add to an empty bowl.

Heat oil in a small pan and add mustard seeds and curry leaves. When the mustard seeds start to splutter, remove the pan and add to the chutney bowl. Mix well and serve along with dosas / idlis / upma.
