Peanut chutney powder, from the cuisines of North Karnataka and Maharashtrian, is also known as shenga chutney pudi or shengdana dry chutney. This tasty version of chutney pudi is actually a quick fix when compared to typical lentil chutney pudi. With just a few ingredients you can easily prepare this versatile mix and use it with anything. Serve as an accompaniment with your dosa,idlis,jowar rotis,chapathi or sprinkle a spoon of it to perk up your stir fries,salads or quickly use it to thicken your curries and gravies. Infact, I use it in vadapavs and sometimes in sabudana kitchdi too. Wow!! Isn’t this spice powder really handy?? Here goes my recipe of peanut chutney powder, aka magic powder, a teaspoon of which can work wonders!!

  2. Dry roast chana dal a little, until they get crispy.
  3. Add a teaspoon of oil to the frying pan. Keep the heat on low and roast red chillies and tamarind.Mid way, add curry leaves, and continue to roast until red chillies, tamarind and curry leaves have turned crisp.
  4. Add garlic and fry the mixture for another 1-2 mins and take off the heat. Garlic will not get crisp. Allow the mixture to cool completely before grinding.
