Peanut Chutney Powder

My mother is an expert in making varities of Chutney Pudi/Gun Powder. Chutney Pudi eaten with steaming hot rice and a spoonful of ghee is a great combination. I love it and always keep any one variety with me. This is something which every household in south india with an exception of Kerala use. I have never seen the mention of this word in kerala. Its called Milaga Podi in Tamil Nadu, Chutney Pudi in Karnataka and Paruppu podi /Gun Powder in Andra Pradesh.


– Grind all the ingredients except Mustard into a fine paste. In a kadai dry splutter mustard and add to the gun powder. Store in air-tight jar.
