How To make Peanut Chutney/ Palli Chutney

For making peanut chutney the raw peanuts are roasted in little oil on low flame till they are nicely browned. Then let the peanuts cool down a bit before grinding. Be careful while roasting the peanuts as over roasted or raw, both peanuts will not taste good in the chutney

There is no need to remove the skin from the roasted peanuts as the skin is rich in fiber and also gives a nice deep red colour to the chutney.Peanuts are a great source of protein, fiber, minerals are vitamins so a very good recipe for your kids too.

After roasting and removing peanuts roast the kashmiri chilies in the same pan with 1 tsp oil. When the roasted peanuts and the chilies cool down completely then add both in the grinder jar and add tamarind pulp,salt and little water and grind to make a smooth paste. Don't add too much water while grinding.make it thicker to increase its shelf life. You can dilute a small portion while serving.

Take out the chutney in a bowl . In a small pan make the tempering. Heat oil and add white lentil/ urad daal,mustard seeds,curry leaves and asafoetida. Add the prepared tempering in the prepared chutney.mix and serve with your favorite snack or tiffin. This palli chutney stays well for a week in the refrigerator.
