Easy Peanut Chutney ( without coconut)

This recipe is easy and different from other usual coconut chutney. I am not a big fan of peanut but I started to love it after having this chutney. I make this chutney for idly and dosa.The best thing about this chutney is its creamy even without coconut, which I love the most. Here you go with the recipe!!



  • Peanut      : 1/2 cup 
  • Roasted channa dhal : 1 tbsp
  • Urad dhal : 1 tbsp
  • Green chilli : 5-6 
  • Ginger : 1 small piece 
  • Salt : as needed 
  • Mustard : 1/2 tsp 
  • Urad dhal : 1 tsp 
  • Curry leaves : few 
  • Asafoetida : 1-2 pinches 
  • Oil : 2 tbsp 


  • Dry roast the peanuts in low flame (ensure that it doesn't burn). Once its is crispy, transfer it to a plate and set aside.Allow it to cool down. 
  • Meanwhile in the same kadai, add a tsp of oil and roast the urad dhal till golden brown color, then add green chilli fry for a minute. 
  • Once done, transfer to a plate and allow it to cool down. Now remove the skin of the peanuts completely.


  • In a mixer, add the cool down ingredients along with ginger, salt and water. Grind to smooth paste.
  • Adjust water consistency to make it smooth and temper it with oil, mustard, urad dhal, curry leaves and asafoetida. Mix well.
  • Now chutney is ready to be served with idly or dosa.



  • Always remember to heat the kadai and then add the peanuts, roast it evenly.
  • Ginger can be replaced with garlic.
  • Green chilli can be replaced with red chilli.
  • If you want, coconut can also be added.
