ABOUT Peanut Chutney RECIPE

This is a simple and a basic peanut chutney that goes very well with any South Indian breakfast like, upma, dosa, idli, pesarattu, uttapam, etc. It is a very good substitute for coconut chutney. You can also add coriander leaves or roasted sesame seeds for a change. A tempering of mustard seeds, curry leaves, asafoetida and urad dal is poured over the end product.
