Palli (Ground nut) Chutney

My husband absolutely loves this chutney. Apart from coconut chutney, this is another chutney I make often. I keep changing the recipe as and when my mood changes but the below recipe is one of the basic ways.

Ground nuts: 1 cup
Onion: 1/2, cut small pieces
Garlic: 1 small clove
Green Chili: 3 small
Tamarind pulp: 1/2 tsp

Grind everything together with 1/2 cup of water or more and keep aside.

Oil: 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds: 1/2 tsp
Channa dal: 1 tsp
Urad Dal: 1 tsp
Curry leaves: 1 string

Heat oil in a small pan and add everything in the same order and fry for a minute. Now, pour over the palli chutney paste and serve with breakfast of your choice! Today I served this with Rava Dosa.
