Method of preparation:
1. Take equal quantities of roasted peanuts and roasted gram. If roasted peanuts are not available, take three tbsp of peanuts and roast them in dry kadai till nice aroma comes. Allow them to cool down and remove the skin of them.
2. Take a mixer grinder, put roasted peanuts, roasted gram, salt, green chillies and tamarind. Before adding tamarind, soak the tamarind in enough water for 15 minutes.
3. First Grind the ingredients to get a fine powder.
4. Now add tamarind water and grind to a smooth paste. Add little water if required. Grind once again to get the desired consistency.
5. Transfer the chutney onto a serving bowl.
