MOONGPHALI KI CHUTNEY (PEANUT CHUTNEY)

MOONGPHALI KI CHUTNEY (PEANUT CHUTNEY)

I associate tea time with a nice, hot cup of tea with a snack to go with it. If you are looking to make a quick yet nutritious snack at tea time, you can consider making Oats Moong Toast.

I found another delicious combination when I made toasts with Moong Phali ki Chutney ( Peanut Chutney) adapted from Sanjeev Kapoor Khazana's YouTube version.

You can either lightly toast the bread as I did or make plain sandwiches. To enhance the health factor, you may like to use brown bread.



Ingredients:
  • Roasted Peanuts,  1 cup
  • Coriander Leaves, 1/2 cup
  • Small Green Capsicum, finely chopped, 1 
  • Garlic Cloves, 3-4
  • Green Chillies, chopped, 2-3
  • Salt, to taste
  • Fresh Lemon Juice, 1 tbsp
Method:

Roast the peanuts, allow them to cool and de-skin them. Keep aside.
Wash the coriander leaves and keep aside.
Finely chop the green capsicum. Keep aside.
In a grinder, combine the roasted peanuts with the coriander leaves, finely chopped green capsicum, chopped green chillies, and garlic cloves.
Add salt, to taste and 1 tbsp of fresh lemon juice
Mix these well and grind to a chutney consistency adding just the required amount of water
Apply the chutney on lightly toasted bread slices
Serve with a hot cup of tea!
