groundnut chutney recipefurthermore some important tips and suggestions for a perfect peanut chutney recipe. firstly, i roasted the raw peanuts with no oil or till it starts shedding its skin. alternatively you can also fry the peanuts with a tsp of oil. secondly, i have added tamarind for a balance of spicy and sour taste. however adding tamarind is completely optional and can be easily skipped. finally, dilute the chutney by adding water to a very thin consistency. this is because groundnut chutney consistency turns thick once it left for few hours.
