Well, no long speeches to hold you on, today I tried something new in my kitchen.
Whenever we have dosas (Indian Crepes) at home, we make sure that there is a coconut chutney that accompanies it, but unfortunately I couldn't do that as I had not coconut at home😐. Crazy isn't it.
Now a simple groundnut chutney recipe once a friend of mine from my old stay location in Germany had shared with me, came handy today and I decided right away to jot down as I made it. Thanks to the roasted and mild salted groundnuts that we get here in supermarkets in tin, making life easy😃.Taking you to the recipe right away!
Roasted Groundnuts - 100gms
Green chilly - 2
Garlic - 3 small pods
Ginger - small piece
Split black gram (Urad dal) - 1 tsp.
Lemon juice- 1 tsp.
Mustard seeds - ½ tsp.
Red dried chilly -1
Salt to taste
Water as required
- Add the roasted groundnuts to the chutney mixer.
- In a pan add 1 tsp. ghee, when hot add split black gram, as they turn golden add chopped green chillies, garlic, ginger, fry for a while.
- Then add to a chutney mixer, roasted groundnuts, the fried mixture prepared in step 2 and coarsely grind them.
- Grind them well initially without water, add lemon juice, followed by that grind adding little by little water.
- Then add water as per the desired consistency and adjust salt to taste.
- Finally add ½ tsp ghee into a pan, add mustard seeds and dried red chilly and let it crackle. Pour the tempering on to the chutney. Enjoy them with dosas or idlis
- If roasted groundnuts are not available, just roast the red raw peanuts, remove the skin and they are ready to go.
- Avoid or reduce ginger if you don't like it's flavor in chutney.
- Adjust green chillies according to your spice level. Add more if you like it really hot.
