3Dried Red Chilliesadjust as needed
Small Marble Sized Ball of Tamarind
Salt as needed
Water as needed
Fresh Curry Leaves
In a microwave safe bowl add raw peanuts and set it on high power for 30 secs. Take it out and give a shake, placing it in for another 30 secs.
Repeat this for 2-3 mins until the peanuts are roasted, as you hear popping sounds and the peanuts have opened up. Time taken to roast the peanuts in microwave depends on the power of the microwave and the quantity being used. Go in regular intervals of 30 secs and shake them well before microwaving again. You can also roast them on stovetop until they begin popping. Let them cool down completely.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a tempering pan. Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds and urad dal along. As the mustard & cumin seeds splutter and urad dal turns golden, add dried red chillies. Fry for 30 secs until the chillies turn a deeper shade. Finally add fresh curry leaves and remove from heat.
In a mixer add roasted peanuts, salt, a small marble sized ball of tamarind and roasted red chillies from the tempering.
Blend until coarse and add some water.
Grind until the chutney is smooth, adding water as needed.
Remove onto a bowl and add the rest of the tempering on top. Serve with hot idlis and dosa.
