Groundnut chutney as everyone knows is a good accompaniment for dosas and idlis and needs no more introduction to South Indians. I love this chutney when compared to the others and make it often at home.
So here's my recipe or I would say my mom's recipe
Urad dhal - 1 tsp
Red chilli -1 long
Garlic cloves - 2 (optional)
One small piece of tamarind
Grated Coconut - 1/4 cup
Toasted groundnuts - 1 cup
Salt - to taste Oil
How I Made It:
Heat oil in a pan. Add the urad dhal and allow it to brown.
Add the garlic cloves and allow to brown.
Now add the red chilli and fry.
When done, add the onions and saute till transparent.
Add the tamarind and saute for another 2 mins.
Now add the groundnuts and toast for 2 mins.
Allow to cool and grind to chutney consistency by adding water.
Serve with dosas / idlis...
