Peanut Onion chutney.



Peanut chutney is already in the menu. But a variation from this which i got in the web is also a good one which is without coconut is a must try one. The difference between the previous recipe and this is increasing more onion .i must say this had been made by me few weeks ago and the photo was pending in the  phone camera. Now with the mixie out of order and waiting period for the new mixie is on the go i think my craving for chutney made me to post this one. Otherwise i was lazy to blog , but i have shot many photos which will come soon after i overcome my laziness. And to raise my collars i am surviving without a mixie for the past one week and i made Arisi thengai payasam for Tamil New Year also Briyani in this mixie less period with my small stone grinder .i think we can cope  up without a mixie if we have this handy one at home. What about an Ammi. that sounds good. Anyhow waiting for my New Preethi mixie to battle the kitchen chores with more enthusiasm and vigour again.
