How to make Andhra Style Peanut Chutney Recipe With Tomatoes

  1. To begin making the Andhra Style Peanut Chutney Recipe, on a low heat, dry roast the peanuts and red chillies together till the peanuts are fragrant and browned. Keep stirring so that they don't burn. Also always split your chilies in half before roasting or frying to prevent the sudden sputtering.

  2. Once the peanuts and chilies are roasted, keep aside to cool.

  3. In about a cup of boiling water, blanch the tomatoes for about 5 minutes, slit the tomatoes slightly at the end so that it's easier to peel. Peel the blanched tomatoes and keep aside to cool.

  4. Once peanuts and tomatoes are cool, grind them together with garlic and salt. Add a little water if required. We need a smooth paste of the chutney. Check the salt and adjust to suit your taste.

  5. The final step is the south indian tadka.

  6. In a small pan, heat oil and add mustard seeds to it. Once they splutter, add the urad dal and curry leaves. Fry for about 1-2 minutes till the dal is browned and crunchy. Top the Peanut Chutney with seasoning.

  7. Serve the Andhra Style Peanut Chutney with hot idlis or dosa.
