Phalli Chutney / Groundnut chutney - Vegan

Chutneys are a quint essential accompaniment for the breakfast in every Indian Household.  The chutney or dips are made using various ingredients and each one is flavorful and unique in it's own way .
Today I have tried to make a Chutney using groundnuts also called as Phalli Pachadi in telugu.

This month in our FB group shhhhh cooking secretly challenge  we are travelling across the state of Telangana and I was given Ginger and Red Chilli powder as secret ingredients by my partner  Sasmita who blogs at First Timer Cook  .

Those of you who know me , will definitely know my love for peanuts and this chutney had to find its place in my blog soon and this was the best opportunity to prepare ,devour and blog.

I am also linking this to the MLLA #132 event being hosted by my cousin Kalyani of Sizzling Tastebuds .

Preparation Time : 10 mins

  1. I love chutneys of all kind, esp the ones that make breakfast a breeze ! this pall pachadi version with tomatoes is new , want to try. I generally make without tomatoes. nice, vibrant colour there...

    1. I am sure all of you will love it. Do try and lemme know .

  2. Phalli Chutney looks so tempting Priya. I can imagine the burst of flavors of this chutney. We are a family who love peanuts so am sure they will enjoy this chutney.

  3. The Phalli Chutney looks absolutely delicious. While I often make chutney using groundnuts, I have never tried adding tomatoes to it. Will try out this version the next time. :)

    1. Do try it and I am sure you will love it . The tanginess from the tomato really lifts the taste of the chutney .this was my first trial with only tomatoes sans the tamarind

  4. I love different types of peanut chutney. And this phalli chutney looks lipsmacking. Happy to get one more peanut chutney recipe.

  5. When I saw this pic I thought it is a curry. I make ground nut chutney but never added tomatoes in it. This is a new chutney to me and looks super delicious. Must try
