Peanut Chutney/ Shenga Chutney

Bored of simple Coconut chutney?
Wanna try something new? 
Do you love peanuts?
Then this post is right for you - Peanut/Shenga/ Groundnut Chutney.

Most of the South Indian Restaurants serve Peanut Chutney powder or Peanut Chutney's. The most commonly prepared chutney at my home is Coconut chutney. Though its loved and goes well with almost every kind of dosa's and idli's , I get bored to have it every other day and the best alternate chutney for dosa's or idli's is tomato chutney or this peanut chutney. You can also spread this over bread slices and it tastes great resembling to Peanut butter taste and kids are going to love it. 

Here's the simple and tasty Peanut Chutney
