Quick and simple peanut curd chutney with step-wise pictures. This Farali peanut chutney is the best side dish for Thalipeeth!
For the last month or so, I have been regularly making Thalipeeth at home and one of the first things I learnt was this Farali Peanut Curd Chutney, that worked as the best side dish. The best part about this chutney is that it is really simple to make and it is quite flavorful too. With the addition of curd, roasted peanuts and cumin seeds – it is thick and creamy. I served this with dosa and idli too, as it is quite similar to the Bombay Chutney. It is a dish made specially for fasting (vrat) and that’s why it is called Farali Chutney too. To be honest, Thalipeeth can be served as it is or with some curd but with this Peanut Curd Chutney it is oh-so-delicious!
