Groundnut Chutney without Coconut - Traditional Grandmother's Style Verkadalai Poondu Chutney

Groundnut Chutney is one of my favourite chutney because it is easy to make, less time consuming and very different and tasty from all other chutney varieties. You can replace this chutney as a sidedish for breakfast dishes like upma, pongal, pesarattu, dosa, idli and vada instead of your usual ones. This can be even served to people who are health conscious because here we are not using coconut. Try this chutney and you will really be appreciated by your family members.
