Wet groundnut chutney Banner

Wet Groundnut Chutney or Peanut Chutney is replacement of Coconut Chutney. South Indian Cuisine like Idli, Dosa, Medu Vada, Appe are very favorite among us. Kids as well as elders are very fond of these cuisines . Not only South India but in other parts of India, these dishes are widely cooked once in a week. Usually supplemented with Sambar and Coconut Chutney. 

What if someone at home doesn't like the flavor of Coconut Chutney. But, South Indian dishes are not complete without Chutney .Yes, some people don't like Coconut Chutney. So, I have another option to make a Chutney to eat with South Indian dishes without using Coconut in it. Its taste is Spicy, Sour and Sweet which is perfect to eat with south Indian dishes.

I make this chutney wet so that it can be easily eaten with Idli, Wada or Appe.
