Note: I have tasted peanut chutney in many restaurants where they prepare the chutney without roastingย  peanuts. I do not like the taste of raw peanut chutney. I prefer to use roasted nuts. You can add 1-2 extra chillies to enjoy spicy tangy peanut chutney.

Roasted peanuts so tempting that I can never wait to see them pasted that they lose their crispness.You add the paste without the roasted peanuts to the dosaimavu and prepare crispies-dosas- and eat them with roasted peanuts! What a thought?
Wishing you all the best for giving me thoughts along with the recipes. Don’t say I am free to practice what I preach![this is the 2nd time]
Thanks guys!
Cheers!
