Peanut mint chutney recipe – There are so many ways a peanut chutney is made. One such variation is this recipe. This Mint peanut chutney is one of the most made chatni at home for the breakfast. It goes wonderfully well with most South Indian foods like dosa, idli, onion uttapam, masala paniyaram, mysore bonda and even with roti or paratha.
This peanut mint chutney turns out to be creamy, delicious with fresh flavors of mint and ginger.
Peanuts are high in protein and are apt to use for breakfast and this is one of the easiest ways to add nutrition to your morning meal. Peanuts can be used to make most chutneys like capsicum chutney, badam chutney, ridge gourd skin chutney.
I try with lot of variations to the basic peanut chutney. Adding mint leaves is one which I like the most. Mint or pudina leaves have lot of health benefits especially when consumed raw. It is great for digestion too.
