Spice Up Your Meals with Creamy Peanut Chutney – South India's Flavorful Delight

Peanut chutney, also known as groundnut chutney, is a delightful South Indian condiment that adds a burst of flavor to your meals. This versatile chutney is incredibly easy to prepare and pairs perfectly with dosas, idlis, or even as a dip for snacks.

To make this savory chutney, start by roasting a cup of peanuts until they turn golden brown. Allow them to cool and then remove the skin by rubbing them between your hands. This step enhances the nutty flavor of the chutney. Next, heat a little oil in a pan and sauté some mustard seeds, urad dal, and dried red chilies until they become aromatic. Add a handful of curry leaves and chopped onions, and cook until the onions turn translucent.

Now, blend the roasted peanuts with this mixture, adding tamarind pulp, salt, and a touch of water. Blend until you achieve a smooth, creamy consistency. Adjust the water to get your preferred thickness. Finally, give it a quick tempering of mustard seeds, urad dal, and curry leaves in hot oil.

The result is a rich, nutty, and slightly spicy peanut chutney that will elevate your meals with its delectable taste. Enjoy this Peanut Chutney as a delightful accompaniment that adds depth and zing to your South Indian dishes.
