Ground nut chutney

ಕಳ್ಳೆಕಾಯಿ ಚಟ್ನಿ 
Ground nut chutney is one of my hubby's favourite chutney. I dont usually keep fresh coconut at home, and this chutney is the best alternatives I can think of for dosa, idly, rotti, etc.

This chutney goes really well with Akki rotti. so enjoy this easy and delicious recipe.

Ground nuts - 1/2 cup (Dry roasted)
Onion - 1/2 (Chopped) (no.)
Garlic - 2 pods
Green chillies - 2 nos. 
Tamarind paste 1 tspn
Salt to taste

For temparing
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tspn
Urad dal - 1/ 4 tspn
Oil - 1 tspn
Curry leaves - 3 - 4 nos.

1) In a pan roast the ground nuts and peel off the dry skin, in the same pan, add onions and garlic pods and fry for a minute (Till the raw smell slightly disappears)
2) Now, add roasted groundnuts, onions, garlic, tamarind paste, salt and green chillies and blend into a course paste.
2) In a small pan, add oil, once hot  add mustard seeds, urad dal, and curry leaves, once they splutter pour this into the above made mixture. and ground nut chutney is ready to serve with dosa, idli, etc..
