Moongfali Chatni/ Peanut Chatni

Moongfali ki Chatni/
Peanut Chatni
Hi Friends,
Festivity is in the air Eid, Rakha Bandhan, Independence Day, Janamashtmi all these festivals added lots of colors to the markets be its colorful rakhis, gifts, tricolor accessories or Radha Krishan dresses & accessories etc etc. Everything is so attractive that you can't stop yourself buying things which you really don't need. Whenever you go to market you came out over the budget shopping and still feeling buying more and more things. Same feelings waves in your mind and heart when you stop by a sweet shop and you see so many colorful sweets that you caught in the grip of dilemma what to buy and what to leave. Sweets are my weakness always. But nowadays i try to avoid them buying. But you know we people have machine life. I thought to make Nariyal/coconut Ladoo for rakhi but busy schedule didn't let me do so. Still i am trying to make it, lets see whether i will be able to do that or finally need to buy stuff from sweet shop which i really don't want.
Now to the today's recipe which is a very quick, tasty and healthy chatni i tried first time. I always say that i am a fan of south Indian cooking. I never thought that it would come out so tasty and my kids and hubby will like it that much. They asked me to make it again. Even i was surprised as i never thought that peanuts can be used to make chatni which will be so lip smacking. I always saw in south Indian recipes using urad daal in chatni/sauce etc. but i always avoid that as i felt that it may remain raw and taste bitter or something like that, but finally when i used this daal in this chutni i was really very much amazed with the results. I liked it very much hope you will like it.

  1. You can add chopped green chilly or red chilly pdr while grinding to spice it up.
