Groundnut Chutney

When I worked in HP, it was the lunch time I enjoyed the most. Though we hardly had time to go out for lunch, we shared and ate as we worked. The best part was, the food from my Team Lead  Shalini's Lunch box. She is an excellent cook and every one of us love her Ragi dosa, Akki rotti with groundnut chutney.

I asked her for the recipe for groundnut chutney once and tried at home. It hardly came out as good as she prepares. So I tried to modify it to taste better and finally narrowed it to a simple recipe which really tastes yummy. Thanks for the recipe Shalini. :)
