Til - Moongfali Chutney - तिल मूंगफली chutney (Sesame Peanut Chutney) for March Blog Hop

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to maintain the continuity. Here is a really late post for the March Blog Hop. Obviously due to this delay I have to apologize to Radhika, organizer of Blog Hops and Nisha, with whom I was paired in March.

Now that apologizes are made and hopefully accepted, here is the recipe I chose from Nisha's blog. I had too many choices, but this chutney caught my eye as I was looking for a new and easy chutney recipe for the idlis I was planning over that weekend.

Nisha, thanks dear, even my older one who is usually very picky with condiments, liked this chutney :)

Til - Moongfali Chutney - तिल मूंगफली chutney (Sesame Peanut Chutney)

Til (White Sesame Seeds) - 1/2 cup
Moongfali (Peanuts) - 1/3 cup
Coconut - 1/4 cup
Tamarind - size of a quarter (one rupee coin)
Dry Red Chilies - 3-4 (per your taste)
Garlic - 4-6 cloves (per your liking)
Salt - per your taste
Oil - 1 tbsp
Water - 1/2 cup (increase or decrease depending on how runny or thick you want your chutney)
For Tempering
Oil - 1 tsp
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
  • Dry Roast Sesame seeds, Peanuts and Coconut till they are golden brown (do not over roast).
  • Take a non stick pan and add oil to it.
  • Once oil is hot, add tamarind, dry red chilies and garlic.
  • Fry till garlic is nicely roasted and golden brown.
  • Add all the ingredients except for tempering (including water) in a mixer/blender and grind to a coarse to smooth paste (as you like, I preferred it not very smooth).
  • Heat oil in a small pan and once it is hot, add mustard seeds and let them sizzle.
  • Immediately add it to the chutney and serve.

I served it with idlis and even with my yogurt rice. So, feel free to serve in in anyway you like. I felt that this was a great spread for sandwiches and rolls as well, if you like that taste.

This also goes to MLLA # 47 event brainchild of Susan.
That's all for now. Take care till next post.
