Heat a kadai. Dry roast peanuts on hot kadai until they turn brown. Remove the nuts from heat and allow them to cool.
Remove the skin from the peanuts. This is very important step, chutney will taste bitter and bad if skin is left on.
In the same kadai, add oil and roast red chilli and garlic for 1-2 mins.
In a mixer, blend to-gether peanuts, coconut,red chilli, garlic and salt and little water into a smooth paste. Do not make chutney very runny, add water little by little while grinding.
Heat oil mentioned in seasoning and add the seasoning items
Remove from kadai and mix it with the chutney.
