Direction || How to prepare Shengdana (Peanut Chutney)
Using a tawa or skillet, roast the peanuts on medium heat until peanuts get dark brown spots on them.
Take these off the heat and allow them to cool on a tray.
Once cool, remove as much of the skin as you can by rubbing the peanuts between your hands to loosen the skin so you can dust or blow them off.
Now in a blender , add peanuts , garlic , red chillies and salt.
Blend it to a coarse powder ( make sure its not too coarse and not too fine powder 🙂
Store in a clean jar in the fridge. Will last 3-4 weeks.
Enjoy it as a side dish with chapati or rice-dal or dosa.
