Peanut Chutney

It is the most usual combination with dosa or idli. My mom mostly prepares chutney by using peanuts along with coconut. That tastes good. But today i am preparing pure peanut chutney by using Red chillies. You can also use green Chillies instead of Red Chilli.


Roasted Peanuts 1 cup
Red Chillies 5
Small Onion 1
Tamarind Juice 1 tbsp
Oil 1 tbsp


1. Grind the peanuts into a powder.

2. Heat oil in a pan and roast red chillies. Dont burn them. Keep them aside. In the same pan cook onions till they are soft.

3. Add these roasted red chillies, tamarind juice and salt to the peanut powder and grind them alltogether again by adding enough water. When it is done, add onions and grind again. Dont grind the onions into a paste. We should be able to see onion junks in the chutney. Serve with dosa or idli.
