Peanut Chutney | Groundnut Chutney
Peanut chutney is a quick chutney for any south Indian breakfast like idli, dosa, etc. This hardly takes 5 minutes to make this yummy chutney.
This is an easy substitute for coconut chutney. However, you can add freshly grated coconut or desiccated coconut to the peanut chutney but you can make only peanut chutney without coconut.
I always keep groundnuts or peanuts at home because we make Kanda poha very often and nuts are an essential ingredient in that. At the same time, I feel scraping coconut from the shell is one of the toughest tasks for me.
So even when I plan to make coconut chutney I buy grated or scraped coconut from the supermarket.
Otherwise, this peanut chutney is an easy substitute for coconut chutney. Also, it goes well with any adai, dosa, idli and so on. So I prefer making this chutney. Also, you can store this chutney for a week or so.
This chutney also has Bengal gram, urad dal or black gram lentils, and so it has a nutty flavor.
