Andhra Style Peanut Chutney

Andhra Style Peanut Chutney

I love Andhra food for its spicy nature, in fact there is hardly a week, that I don’t go out to an Andhra restaurant. We usually have so many different dishes for breakfast like parathas, idli, dosa etc. and as per Indian traditions we all love chutney with nearly all these dishes. So today I made an Andhra style chutney using peanuts, the peanuts are fried with some spices and then spiced again with some tadka. This chutney goes perfectly with all dishes as an accompaniment and is uniquely spiced for a perfect taste. So at times we should get away from the usual chutney and achaar and make and have something different and this Andhra Style Peanut Chutney Recipe lets you do just that. So lets see how to make this quickly and easily at home. Enjoy!
