Peanut/ Groundnut Chutney recipe with step by step pictures
- Heat oil in a pan, fry curry leaves, garlic cloves and red chilli until curry leaves turn crisp.
- When the curry leaves turn crisp, add peanuts (skin removed) and fry until slightly brown. if you brown a lot, it will taste bitter. If you have only peanuts with skin, then saute it separately until hot and toss and blow to remove the skin. adding skin in chutney will make the chutney taste bitter.
- switch off and add tamarind and salt to taste. mix well and let it cool. once cool, grind it along with little water to fine paste. tempering is not actually required. If you wish, temper it with mustard seeds and urad dal.
