For tempering:


  • Dry roast the peanuts. Remove the skin of the peanuts by rubbing and keep the cleaned peanuts aside.
  • Heat oil in a wok. Add the red chillies.
  • When the red chillies start changing color, add the onions and garlic followed by tamarind broken into smaller pieces and fry till they turn golden brown. Remove from heat and let it cool.
  • Once everything is cold, grind the onion mixture along with peanuts and salt to a fine paste adding enough water.
  • Heat oil in a wok again and add the mustard seeds.
  • Once the mustards splutter, add the urad dhal, red chillies and curry leaves and saute for a few seconds.
  • Pour this over the ground paste and check for salt.
  • Serve with Idli, dosa etc and you can enjoy this heavenly flavored chutney with some hot rice and pappad too.
  • Tips:- 1)As a variation, use one tomato instead of onion. Saute the tomatoes separately for a few seconds and grind along with the other ingredients. Happy cooking 🙂
