Phalahari Mungfali Til Chutney | Peanuts Sesame Chutney | Navratri Vrat Recipes

Phalahari Mungfali Til Chutney, Vrat Ki Chatni, Peanut Sesame Chutney is delicious chutney suitable for fasting (vrat/upwas) or with idli-dosa or any tiffin items. If you like peanut chutney then you will love this one too, sesame makes this chutney creamy and tasty. This is another chutney that I make often other than my peanut chutney, onion tomato chutney. The best thing about this chutney is it's suitable for everyday and also while fasting (vrat/upwas).

If you don't eat red chili or red chili powder while fasting then add green chili or pepper corns and I have used normal salt in this particular instances you have to replace it with sendha namak which I have mentioned in the ingredients. You can have this chutney with cheela, paratha, poori, vada/bada, thalipeeth or anything that you making during fasting and it's requires a side dish.


We can do lot of variations in this chutney like we can also add 2-3 tbsp of grated fresh coconut or if not making this during fasting or vrat then add 1-2 pods of garlic and if you don't have tamarind (imli) then add 1 tbsp of lemon juice. Sesame is high in calcium and peanut o fcourse is high in minerals, antioxidants, vitamins so this chutney is quite nutritious compare to any other chutney and also it's tasty.
