Peanut Shallot Chutney

Peanut chutney is our favourite side dish and we love to enjoy thoroughly either with Idlies or dosas. Since i want to add one more chutney with peanuts to my chutney collections, am posting this fingerlicking,nutty, flavourful chutney. This chutney tastes absolutely fantabulous especially with crispy dosas. I bet that you will truly have two more idlies or dosas definitely with this delicious chutney.I picked this chutney from a tamil magazine supplement called 30 varieties of Village foods. Peanuts and shallots makes a fantastic pair and this chutney is our recent favourite. Roasted peanuts gives a wonderful flavour, while the shallots makes this chutney more delicious, since this chutney goes for tamarind and coconut you can have this dish even as side dish for porridge. You can omit very well the tempering part, but i cant imagine chutneys without tempering.

If you dont get shallots, then you can use the red onions here, but trust me shallots will definitely take this dish to an another destination. A completely different chutney to enjoy if you love peanuts and shallots in your chutney.This post goes  for the CC Challenge of the month.

1/2cup Roasted Peanuts
10nos Shallots
1/4cup Coconut (grated)
1no Tamarind (blueberry size)
4nos Garlic cloves
4nos Dry red chillies
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1/4tsp Urad dal
Few curry leaves

Heat few drops of oil, fry the shallots,garlic cloves, roasted peanuts, grated coconut, tamarind, dry red chillies together until they turns brown.

Take this in a blender, grind as bit coarse paste with enough water.

Heat oil, add the mustard seeds,urad dal and curry leaves until they turns brown.

Add the tempered spices to the chutney.

Give a stir and serve.
