Peanut Chutney

May 2, 2014 Chutney RecipesSide Dish for Idli/Dosa  10 comments

Peanut chutney is an easy, tasty & healthy chutney that’s goes well with soft idlis or dosa. Apart from roasting & peeling the peanuts there is not much work involved in this recipe.

To be honest – I hate peanuts, but somehow love this nutty flavourful chutney. So if u are like me, try this peanut chutney. It’s surely a winner recipe..

Now to the recipe..


[Preparation Time-5 mins : Cooking Time- 10 mins]


  • Peanuts – 1/2 cup
  • Shallots – 10 to 15
  • Dry red chillies – 2 to 3
  • Curry leaves – 2 sprigs
  • Tamarind paste – 1 tsp
  • Salt – as needed
  • Oil – 1 tbsp
  • Mustard – 1 tsp


  • Heat a pan and dry roast peanuts in low flame until a nice aroma comes from it.It will split slightly. Remove the skin by rubbing it in between your palms. Keep this aside. In the same pan add a tsp of oil and roast the dry chillies.

  • In the same pan saute the shallots until transparent and keep this aside. Add the curry leaves and switch off the flame. The heat will be enough to roast it.

Yummy, flavourful peanut chutney is ready.

I served with soft idlis. Is it not a guilt free recipe???



  1. Its better to remove the peanuts skin. It might turn out bitter otherwise. U can skip this step if using roasted peanuts.
  2. U can add grated coconut and grind it.
  3. U can add one or two garlic pods too.
