Peanut chutney is my favorite and to my DH too. We will prepare this dish often in home.


Peanuts - 1/2 cup

Small onions - 2 cup

Curry leaves - few

Jeera - 1 tsp

Coriander seeds/ powder - 1 1/2 tbsp

Oil - 1 tbsp


Soaked Tamarind - 3 pods

Coconut - 1/2 cup [ optional] I don't use it.


1. Heat kadai, add onions and oil.

2. Saute till onions are well cooked.

3. Add red chillies and curry leaves and fry for 1 min.

4. Simmer the flame and add jeera. Saute for 30 sec.

5. Add coriander powder/ seeds and saute in simmer flame for 1 min.

6. Cool, add peanuts and coconut.

7. Grind in adding soaked tamarind and salt.

8. Serve with idly and rice.
