peanut chutney recipe

i do have both fresh coconut and desiccated coconut in my kitchen most of the times. but there are occasions when there is no trace of any coconut. either the organic vegetable delivery has not yet come or the desiccated coconut has got over or i feel lazy to grate coconut.

we generally have a typical indian breakfast in the mornings. either its idli or dosa or poha or paratha. so when i make idli or dosa during breakfast time. i have to make some chutney right, to go with the soft idlis or the crisp dosas. so on such occasions, i make a quick peanut chutney. and what if there are no peanuts. then i make coriander chutney 🙂

now you have to try this peanut chutney to know how good it is. there are sesame seeds as well as roasted chana dal (bengal gram) also in the chutney. so this is a healthy chutney recipe for you.

unlike coconut chutney this peanut chutney won’t get spoiled or rancid if you add it to tiffin box or keep it out. so for a tiffin box having idli or dosa, you can add this peanut chutney to it. but do this only on the day when you make the chutney.

i make this peanut chutney and refrigerate it. stays good for 5-6 days. whenever i make light snacks i serve this chutney or with the family favorite – idli and dosa.

steps to make this awesome peanut chutney

1: heat oil in a pan. add the peanuts and fry them in the oil till they start changing color. fry for about 3-4 minutes on a low to medium flame.
