Phalli Chutney / Groundnut chutney - Vegan

Share with friends and family

Chutneys are a quint essential accompaniment for the breakfast in every Indian Household.  The chutney or dips are made using various ingredients and each one is flavorful and unique in it's own way .
Today I have tried to make a Chutney using groundnuts also called as Phalli Pachadi in telugu.

This month in our FB group shhhhh cooking secretly challenge  we are travelling across the state of Telangana and I was given Ginger and Red Chilli powder as secret ingredients by my partner  Sasmita who blogs at First Timer Cook  .

Those of you who know me , will definitely know my love for peanuts and this chutney had to find its place in my blog soon and this was the best opportunity to prepare ,devour and blog.

I am also linking this to the MLLA #132 event being hosted by my cousin Kalyani of Sizzling Tastebuds .

Preparation Time : 10 mins

Saute the tomatoes with some salt , fresh coriander, haldi and asafoetida and cook until the tomatoes turn mushy . Allow it to cool.

Prepare a tempering of mustard seeds and pour it over the chutney. Enjoy with any  breakfast item like idli, dosa , oothappam , chapati etc or can also be mixed with hot rice and ghee .
