Peanut Chutney | Verkadalai Chutney | Chutney Recipe

Peanut Chutney, an easy chutney made from the peanuts & coconut. It's a great accompaniment  for idli, dosai or any south Indian breakfast.

If you have roasted peanuts in hand, then literally within a  few minutes, your chutney would be ready. Here the proportion of peanut to coconut is really up to you, usually i have used nearly equal amount of both just because we like that way. 

But you can add more or less of peanut as per your liking. I have seen people making this chutney even without coconut too, so it's really your choice.
