Seriously mornings are getting busier day by day.Cooking,packing lunch boxes,making every one get ready on time ,serve on time ,rush to bus stop on time.. Uff.. looks like time runs super fast in the mornings..with that,its making us all run on toes. In these scenarios,Chutney powders always come to my rescue,when i don’t have any time left to cook a side dish.You can find at least one type of chutney powder stocked up in my pantry always.Prepare at one shot and store for few months.Today i share with you all one of the simplest and yummilicious chutney powders of all ” Peanut Chutney Powder / Kadlekayi or Shenga Chutney Pudi ” .
Peanut chutney powder also known as shenga chutney pudi or shengdana dry chutney is actually a North Karnataka and Maharashtrian Cuisine.That’s the advantage of having relatives from different regions.I got to learn this recipe from my granny (who’s from North Karnataka) through my Mom. In fact my last two typical north Karnataka recipes , Jolada rotti and ennegayi palya are also from my granny’s cook book . She was a very good cook.
This version of chutney pudi is actually a quick fix when compared to my normal lentil chutney pudi ,but coming to taste, this is very addictive.With just a few ingredients you can easily prepare this versatile mix and use it with anything everything.Serve as an accompaniment with your dosa,idlis,jowar rotis,chapathi or sprinkle a spoon of it to pep up your stir fries,salads or quickly use it to thicken your curries and gravies.I infact use it in vadapavs and sometimes in sabudana kitchdi too. Wow !! isn’t this spice powder really handy ?? Don’t you think its worth to store them in your pantry too? Here goes my recipe of peanut chutney powder aka magic powder ..a teaspoon of which that can work wonders !!
