Jain Peanut Chutney

Chutneys are the best condiment especially when paired along with Indian food. This chutney is jain and also can be used during Paryushan. Peanut or Groundnut is a thickening agent and the chilies are added for a kick. The spices will balance the chutney and make this perfect. It is versatile as it can be paired along with so many things like Idli, dosa, chilla or cutlets. It is very easy to make and great alternative to coconut or cilantro chutney.
