Peanut- Tomato Chutney


1. Diced Tomatoes - 4

2. Peanuts - 50 gms

3. Green chillies - 5 (long slits)

4. Garlic - 3 cloves

5. Salt

6. Tadka ( cumin seeds, mustard seeds, chana dal, curry leaves, red chillies) - Optional


1. Roast the peanuts for 5 - 8 mins on medium flame and keep aside .

2. Take a spoon of oil in a pan and add tomatoes and green chillies and saute for 5 mins on medium flame. The raw smell of tomato should fade .

3. Now, in a blender add roasted peanuts, sauteed tomatoes and green chillies, garlic and salt.

4. Blend until desired consistency is achieved( I prefer to keep it coarse ).

5. Take oil in a wok. Add tadka ingredients. Once the mustard seeds start to splutter add the tadka to the blended chutney. *

6. Serve with hot dosas or idlis

NOTE: I did not use the tadka. But it sure adds a good flavor
