Peanut Chutney | Mungfali Ki Chutney
Like most of the recipes, peanut chutney is also made in multiple ways and I have my own styles too, though I make the same chutney in different way but this method I use often, of all the chutneys, peanut is my favourite one & so of my nephew, I still didn’t blog the recipe as most of us do know how to make this wonderful chutney. One of friend was over our place to stay and one day I made upma with apple cilantro chutney plus this peanut chutney for breakfast and from then she is asking me to blog this recipe, this time when I made it I decided to take pictures and to write down, so here presenting peanut chutney in my style.
There are lot of variations in this simple peanut chutney too, you can try with coconut, without roasted gram dal, with ginger etc & that’s makes this chutney perfect side dish for idly, dosa, upma, pongal, vada and for me I can have it with roti, parata, any variety rice…just anything so do try this and I am sure you will love this simple, easy, quick chutney too. I say easy cause I don’t really do much of tempering in all, this time I did since I knew am going to blog it so let’s make the chutney looks pretty! Otherwise if you ignore the tempering you are not missing anything great.
