Here is the recipe for Peanut – onion chutney.
Peanuts – 1 1/2 cups
Onion – 1 small or half of the big onion – finely chopped
Garlic – 1 clove – finely chopped
Green Chillies – 4 – chopped finely
Ginger – 1/2 inch – chopped finely
Curry leaves – few – chopped finely
Shredded coconut – 2 tbsp (optional)
Tamarind paste – 1/2 tsp
oil – 1 tbsp
Salt – as per taste
Oil – 1 tbsp
Mustard Seeds – 1 tsp
Urad Dal – 1 tsp
Dry red chillies – 1
Asafoetida powder – 1/2 tsp
Dry roast the peanuts and keep them aside.
In the same pan, heat 1 tbsp of oil and saute the curry leaves, ginger, garlic, green chillies and onions till done.
Turn off the heat and then add the shredded coconut.
Allow it to cool down completely.
Grind the above mixture with roasted peanuts, tamarind paste, salt and a cup of water to a fine paste.
**(you can separate the peel of the peanuts if needed, i prefer to grind with the skin because the peel is high in antioxidants and other nutrients)
Now prepare the tempering with oil, mustard seeds, urad dal, dry red chillies and asafoetida.
Add the tempering to the chutney.
The peanut – onion chutney is ready to be served.
Serve it with hot idlis or dosas or even rice and papad 🙂
