Written by: 7aumsuvai
Simple and yummy chutney prepared with peanut, coconut and other spices. It goes well with hot idlies and dosai. 

Serves 10 people
  • 2 cups – Peanuts/ Verkadalai
  • 10 to 12 no – Dry red chillies (or add as needed)
  • 1/2 coconut (grated) or 1 cup – Coconut slices
  • 1 no – Tamarind (gooseberry)
  • 1 handful – Fresh curry leaves
  • Salt to taste
  • Water as needed
  • 2 tbsp – Sesame oil
  • 1 tsp – Mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp – Split black gram/Ulunthu/urad dal
  • Handful of fresh curry leaves
  • Hing / asafoetida/Perungayam as needed

Preparation method:
  1. Soak tamarind in a cup of water. We can use soaked water to grind and at the same time tamarind will become soft enough to grind it smoothly.
  2. Dry roast peanuts separately until they are well roasted. Set it aside. Allow them to cool completely, remove the skin as much as possible.
  3. Add little oil in the pan, roast dry red chilies until they are slightly brown. Set it aside.
  4. Take a blender, add roasted peanuts, dry red chilies, coconut slices or grated,tamarind soaked, fresh curry leaves, required salt, and blend it thoroughly like a paste by adding the water in which tamarind was soaked.
  5. Finally season it with items given in the list for seasonings. Peanut chutney is ready to serve.


  • Add dry red chilies as per your spice level.
  • You may either add grated or sliced coconut in this recipe.
