  • 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.
