Peanut masala chutney - Peanut masala Dip - Side dish for Idli, Dosa, Paratha

Peanut! My family goes nuts about it. My kids love the flavour of peanut. I can safely say at least 1/2 of my earning goes in buying peanut and peanut butter. During my last trip to Trichy my mum has ordered food from outside. It came with chutney. It looked bright red in color. So everyone thought it was tomato chutney but when tasted we are all pleasantly surprised by the taste of peanut in it. Needless to say we all love it! I tried to do it at home with my own guess of the ingredients. We loved it too. My version is less spicy if you want more spicier pls. increase no of chillies. 

Onion - 1 (thinly sliced)
Tomatoes - 3 (medium size. Chopped finely)
Garlic - 5 pods
Red chillies - 5-7 (adjust to your spice level)
Salt to taste
Roasted Peanut - 1/2 cup
Coconut - 3 tablespoon
Oil - 1.5 tablespoon
Curry leaves - 10 +20
Mustard seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Urad dhal - 1 teaspoon


Heat 3 teaspoon of oil. Add garlic, 20 curry leaves and fry till garlic is slight brown color. Add onion and fry till transparent. 
Add tomato and fry till mushy. Add coconut and fry for 2 mins. Add peanut and fry for a min
Switch it off and let it cool down. And grind to thick paste. 
Heat rest of the oil. Add mustard seeds and let it pop. Add curry leaves and urad dhal. Fry till dal is in brown color

  4. One comment is to point out that it is very wise to
    take one sarong and one bandana. Fabrics we used include satin, chiffon,
    taffeta and organza. We all hope to a model each and incredibly Elan International could be up and coming designer with the an incredible group of summer
    sweaters, at fascinating prices apart from. Start with
    laying out classic separates that you already own, then make a list of
    the bracelets you need to complete your look. Before the Mikveh or ritual
    immersion, every part of the body including all tresses must be submerged.
    Denim on basic tones and good to look at cool shirts to set
    of two with these are definitely the next set of clothes 'must have' for women. Find clothes that express your little
    one’s personality and feel comfortable on.
