Roasted peanut chutney/dip

Peanut chutney


Peanut chutney is very easy to make and tastes great. This is very commonly made in every house hold and does it magic with any dish.

This chutney is more like a fresh salsa and it’s like western butter counterpart, it is spread on breakfast toast or snack crackers.

Health benefits:

Peanuts are low in fat, high in fiber, and rich in iron and proteins.

  • Once peanuts are roasted transfer it to the bowl and set aside, in the same pan saute red chillies,garlic ,pepper corns, tamarind for 2-3minutes and let it cool down.
  • As the peanuts and the chilli –garlic cools down grind it to the smooth paste, finally add mint, coriander , salt and give it a pulse until it blends.
