Peanut Chutney is smooth and creamy, perfect to go with any Indian breakfast dish like Vada, uttapam etc. Peanut chutney is a Andhra famous and everyone’s favorite at home. 


There are so many variations to this chutney, so here I am showing you one of the many ways. I used only red chilies to give the spice as I want the red color for the chutney. If you use green chilies you get whitish beige color. So its mainly personal preference. 

You can also use pre roasted peanuts for convenience. You can use peanuts with or without skin, anything is fine. I happened to have skinless peanuts so I used them. 

We also Tamarind to the chutney to give a tangy zing, highly recommended but can also skip if desired. Serve Peanut chutney with this weight loss protein rich Dosa

I used my Vitamix to make the chutney but you can use any blender of choice but make sure it has enough power to crush the peanuts and tamarind to smooth paste.
