Easy Peanut Chutney (without coconut) / Side dish for Idli and Dosa

Bored of routine Coconut chutney? Try out this creamy & tasty Peanut chutney; a best accompaniment for Idli, Dosa and Uthappam!

I tasted this chutney in my friend Rekha house for the first time and learnt the recipe from her. 

It can be prepared in very less time; interesting part is you can store this chutney in refrigerator / fridge for 3 to 4 days. Just remember to thaw before serving!

Do try this and post your feedback.

Serves - 3 to 4 people


Peanuts -1 cup
Red chilli - 3 to 4
Garlic - 3 cloves
Tamarind- a small piece
Salt - to taste

For Seasoning:

Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds -1 tsp
Curry leaves - one sprig


Dry roast the groundnut till it becomes brown and crisp. Allow to cool.

Once it is cooled; rub it with your palm to remove the skin. keep aside.

Take a blender or mixer; add groundnuts, garlic, tamarind, red chilli and salt along with water (adjust water quantity according to the desired consistency) and grind it to a fine paste.

Transfer chutney into a serving bowl.

Take another pan, add oil and season it with mustard seeds and curry leaves; pour it over the chutney.

Give it a mix and serve.


Adjust the spice level according to your taste.
