Groundnut chutney is a very tasty accompaniment that can be served with idli or dosa. It was during last winter that I first made it, and since then , it has become a routine.

Usually, roasted groundnuts are grinded with  green chillies  and salt along with a little tamarind pulp. But, I have made a slight variation here. The consistency was dense, adding a little coconut was appropriate and a dash of ginger gave more taste to it..


  • Roasted groundnuts 1/2 cup
  • coconut 1tsp
  • green chilly 2
  • curry leaves a few
  • ginger 1/2 inch
  • tamarind pulp 1tsp
