Peanut Chutney (wet)

Posted on Updated on

We normally prepare wet chutneys with fresh grated coconut as the base with different ingredients. But other ingredients may be used as the base such as chick peas dal or peanuts. ( In fact in many hotels they combine small amounts of coconut with Dalia dal (roasted Bengal gram Dal) to reduce costs.)

I am putting up a chutney with peanuts as the base (with very little coconut) – I happened to try out this chutney last week for chapathi and it was much tastier than the normal chutney. Worth a shot – here goes the recipe.

[ Link to other wet chutney recipes ]

What you need to have:

– Peanuts – 4Oz/1/2 cup

– Fresh grated coconut – 4 teaspoons

– Curry leaves a few

– Coriander leaves – a handful

– Asafoetida ( soft ) – size of a peanut

– Tamarind pulp – 1/2 teaspoon

– Green chillie – 2-3

– Salt as per taste
