Winters in India are associated with hot Jowar bhakri, peanut and sesame chutney, roasted brinjals and a variety of greens. This roasted peanut and sesame chutney goes well with Bhakri, Chapati or even on buttered slices of bread.
100 gms Peanuts
50 gms Sesame
15 garlic cloves
2 heaped tbsps of Kashmiri Chilly powder
A large pinch of Jeera/Cumin seeds
A Chickpea sized piece of Tamarind
Roast the peanuts on a gentle flame and remove the skin. Alternatively you could microwave them till they are crisp. Dry roast the sesame too on a gentle flame till they start spluttering. Allow to cool. Drop in the roasted peanuts, sesame, tamarind, chilly powder, garlic and salt into a mixer jar and powder the ingredients on pulse mode. Do not fine grind them as both peanuts and sesame release oil. Just pulse to a coarse consistency. Enjoy with hot Bhakri or chapati.
