Groundnut chutney

Groundnut chutney

Who doesn’t love peanuts? I like the taste of this nut and adding it to dishes always gives it a distinct taste. I learned this chutney from an Telugu friend of mine and she shared how they made this recipe at her home. I now make this whenever I make idli or dosa at home…Thanks girl!

Ingredients
1 cup – peanuts
5 dried red chillies
1 small onion and 1 garlic clove – sliced to big chunks
2 teaspoons – tamarind pulp or to taste
½ tsp salt or to taste
For tadka – 1 tsp each – cumin, mustard seeds, urad dal and six curry leaves

Method
First step is roasting the peanuts. Place an skillet on stove top and on medium heat, slowly roast the peanuts to golden brown color. Cool and rub the skins off.  Heat a tablespoon of oil to smoking point in an skillet. Add and brown dried red chillies, onion and garlic.
Wait few minutes for them to cool down. This cooling process somehow increases the chutney taste tremendously and saves the motor blade of your mixer from melting.
Take roasted peanuts in a blender/food processor. Grind to fine. Add other ingredients, plus tamarind, salt and a cup of water. Grind to fine consistency. Remove the chutney to a bowl.
Do the tadka (toast tadka ingredients listed above, in half teaspoon of oil in a vessel), add them to the chutney. Mix and serve.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
