Peanut Chutney

This recipe was given to me by a friend's mother, who thought we should not be having coconut chutney so often.  This was many years ago and I still think of her when I make it.  Right now she is in her mid 80s and unwell, but is still cheerful whenever we drop in to see her.


( served here with rava idli)

Ingredients:


Groundnuts - 1/2 cup
Green chilies - 2-3 ( depending on size of the chilies and spice tolerance)
Garlic - 1 large pod
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Tamarind paste - 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Red chilies - 1
Curry leaves - few

Roast the peanuts dry or with 1/4 tsp of oil - dehusk if you wish, I generally do not for it is too much of a bother
Grind to paste along with green chilies, garlic, cumin seeds, tamarind and salt.
Make to the required consistency with a little water

Season with oil, mustard, and red chilies. When the mustard splutters add the curry leaves.

Add to the chutney
