Peanut Chutney

by Aparna,

Peanut Chutney is ideal for breakfast and compliments well with Rava Idly. Peanuts are high in calorie and protein so it is best consumed in mornings, as you have enough time to burn the loaded calories. Peanut Chutney is simple and tastier than many other chutneys. It is mostly preferred by kids for its nutty taste.
