Peanuts and roasted gram chutney| Chutney for dosa and idli | South indian chutneys

South Indian food is incomplete with out the mention of chutneys ,and pickles.Be it from hot, sour,sour and sweet just start naming it and there seems to be no end to the variations of chutneys .South Indian breakfast  generally starts on a savoury note .
Idlis, dosa, uttappam ......all are paired with chutneys  and sambar of course.  So today's post is a simple yet tasty Peanut and roasted gram  chutney that goes well with idly or dosa .I had served it with ragi dosa.This chutney even goes well with Meduvada.
Every south Indian house hold has its own recipe of chutneys .This is my granny's recipe which till today  I follow  .
