This chutney is from my mother's repertoire of recipes & hence special to me.
Peanuts have a nutty but pleasantly sweet taste & roasting enhances their taste . Combine them with some simple ingredients to get a spicy chutney with the crunch of raw onions.
Peanuts - 1/2 cup , roasted & cooled
Red chilly - 9 No.s , ( byadagi & guntur , mixed )
Copra - 2 Tbsps , grated
Tamarind - 1 tbsp , soaked
Jaggery - 1 tsp
Salt - to taste
Onion - 1 , finely chopped
Oil - 1 tsp
Mustard, jeera , curry leaves, hing
Roast the peanuts till raw smell goes , slip in the chillies & turn off the gas. Let it cool.
In a blender ,whizz the dry ingredients first. Add the tamarind & grind again with a little water, to get chutney consistency.
Transfer to a serving bowl & mix with the onions.
Temper the oil & pour over the chutney.
Goes well with hot rice & also good as a accompaniment with rotis.
