In India ‘Chutneys’ are supposed to be the best accompaniments with snacks and savories. It’s only in our country and few of our adjoining countries where Chutneys, both wet and dry and mostly made. Chutney also transliterated chatney or chatni) is a family of condiments associated with South Asian cuisine made from a highly variable mixture of spices, vegetables, or fruit. There are a huge range of chutneys made all across India, one of my favorite one is the dry chutney powder. Gun powder , Molgapodi etc is one amongst them.
My mom is an active social worker in our city. The NGO she works with has various departments and one of them is Masala Udyog. In winters the NGO women make some awesome dry chutney powder to sell and trust me the whole lot gets finish in no time. That was when i got to taste this amazing garlic n peanut dry roasted chutney powder. Since then i had been asking for this recipe. Finally mom got the recipe from those NGO workers and i gave a try at home. Oh My God!!!!…. the taste was exactly what i had on my taste buds since i tasted it long back. Made whole jar full of it and enjoyed it with almost everything. Intially i started relishing it with dosa and idli, but by now i am so much addicted to it that i even have it with simple dal-chawal n dahi….lol
