Peanut Chutney - Kadalai Chutney Recipe

Peanut Chutney
The first time I tasted peanut chutney / groundnut chutney / verkadalai chutney was from a friend during our college days and from then I have been a fan of this creamy chutney.Piping hot soft idlis with any chutney or tiffin sambar is a staple at home. Mittu loves onion tomato chutney, and she licks it even without the main course :)
