Peanut coconut chutney was in my to do list from last year. This time when i was thinking to make it, saw Ramya's post in Instagram and was too tempted to make it immediately. The idea of adding shallots |chinna vegayam in the tempering, tempted me so much. I used to do this for coconut chutney and mentioned in that post too.

  • This peanut coconut chutney will take lot of water while we are grinding. I added 1.5 cups of water while grinding the chutney.
  • Transfer it to a bowl.. 
  • Add the onion mixture to the chutney. 
  • The crunchiness of the onions in the chutney enhances the taste.
  • Serve with idli or dosa or paniyaram. 
Notes:
  1. A clove of garlic can be added to the chutney while grinding it. 
  2. Green chilis can be replaced with red chili. 
  3. Raw peanuts can be ground along with their skin, no need to remove the skin for making the peanut coconut chutney.
