Peanut Chutney or Groundnut Chutney is a very famous spicy chutney from Andhra Cuisine. It is a good substitute for coconut chutney.
This protein-packed peanut chutney can be made in different variations. In this recipe, let us see how to make peanut chutney with onions.
I normally like to use peanuts with skin on it as they are rich in antioxidants. When peanuts are roasted with skin on it, their antioxidant capacity doubles. If you would prefer to remove the skin, you can do it after roasting.
This peanut chutney is very easy to make which requires not much time and it is quite stomach-filling as peanuts keeps you full for a longer time. This helps in weight management too.
Coming to the combination, this is the best side dish along with idli, dosa, uthappam etc.., It also tastes good along with curd rice and lemon rice. Don’t miss this combination too❤
