Onion Peanut chutney

I like to experiment and hunt for various variety of chutneys for idli or dosa .Hence you will find 37 varieties of chutnies on my blog.
Yesterday while surfing net I found this chutney by Mrs Vah re Vah chef and without wasting time i tried this chutney with stuffed matar paratha.OMG it was yummilicious.

I was short of time so didnt do tempering/tadka .You can do tempering as per your liking but it tastes yummy even without tadka.Also I used tamarind instead of lemon juice in original recipe .I have not removed skin of the peanuts so the chutney has a brownish tinge .


Peanuts - 1/4 cup
medium onion - 1 no
green – 2-3 nos ( add more for spicy taste)
Garlic cloves – 2big cloves or 4 small
ginger half inch piece (optional)
Tamarind - a small pinch / 2 tsp lemon juice (adjust as per spiciness of chillies)
Salt & water - as needed
To temper  (optional)
Cooking oil - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
Urad dal - 1/2tsp
Curry leaves – few

  1. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a kadai and roast the peanuts.After 2 minutes,add the chopped big onion,red chillies,garlic cloves and a pinch of tamarind along with required salt.
  2. Saute everything well.Let it cool.Grind it to a smooth paste and temper the mustard seeds,urad dal & curry leaves.
  3. Serve with idli,dosa drizzled with gingely oil.
  • Adjust the quantity of green chillies as per your taste.can use red chillies instead of green
  • You can add half inch ginger to above recipe
  • Tempering gives a nice flavor to this chutney but is optional
  • can replace tamarind with lemon juice
