Peanut Coriander Chutney

When we are bored with the usual coconut chutney for idli and dosa  this chutney made  with peanut and coriander is a welcome change.In the postpartum period, peanut can be used in small quantities and mom made this chutney for me.It was such a  yummy side dish and I loved the nutty coriander flavor of the chutney.

The health benefits of Coriander leaves are numerous.
So here is the chutney made from this super good leaf....

Mom used:

Peanut,roasted - 1 cup
Coriander leaves- 1 bunch
Ginger- 1" piece
Salt to taste

For seasoning:

Mustard -1 teaspoon
Cumin seeds- 1/2 teaspoon
Urad dal - 1/2 teaspoon
Curry leaves- a few
Oil- 1 teaspoon

  1. Grind together coriander leaves, peanuts, ginger and salt using water.Transfer the chutney into a bow.
  2. Heat oil and put in the ingredients listed under seasoning.When it splutters, pour over the chutney and mix well.
Serve along with idli / dosa


You can replace half the quantity of peanuts with grated coconut
