Our favorite nut for sure. Peanuts is an economically wise choice for regular use as nut. Infact the organic varieties also work out well, for the pocket. Here’s a versatile dip from the humble peanut!You can get different tasting dips from same base ingredient:Add the curry leaves and mustard seeds – it’s a south Indian chutney.Add honey, lemon, chillie flakes – it’s a satay like peanut dip.Add some water, put on a wok, add steamed veggies and it’s a curry!Here is the south Indian version of peanut chutney

  • Peanut: 1 cup (We prefer 24 Mantra organic)
  • Crushed Jaggery: 1 tsp (to taste). Can use honey also
  • Red chilli: 1 whole (adds a nice color)
  • Soaked Imli – ¼ cup. Can use lemon too
  • Sendha Salt/ Rock salt: to taste
  • Water: ¼ cup (or less) only for consistency


  • Black mustard seeds – ½ tsp
  • Curry leaves – 1/4th cup

To roast peanuts:

  • Roast peanuts in a wok.
  • Keep on a plate, crush with hand, remove skin.
  • Blow the skin away gently – yes that’s easy.
  • Roasted peanuts ready.
  • Keep this in bottle to make the dip in under 10 minutes as and when needed.


To make the dip:

  • Dry roast mustard seeds and curry leaves.
  • Add the roasted peanuts, curry leaves, mustard seeds in a mixer with other ingredients and blend well. Add some water to get a nice paste.
  • Taste-test to balance the salt and lemon.

Tip: Keep roasted peanuts in your kitchen cabinet always. Add it liberally to salads as is, crushed or in form of above dip.

Dates can be used instead of jaggery with no change in taste. We make this plenty at home. A dash of onion or garlic gives a beautiful taste too
