Hot-n-spicy groundnut chatni for your meal!

Like, if you are good at rice, you might just try different biryanis or pulaos. If you are good at chicken you might bake or fry different chicken dishes. Or you might simply like to stick around with your cake recipes. Why is this so? Simply because you are good at it, right? Exactly!

But cooking isn’t restricted to just one kind of recipe. Whether you’ve done it before or not, you can always try your hand to make different dishes. Rice, noodles, parathas, pizzas, curries, salads, pickles, chatnis, shakes and desserts, you can try them all. There is no harm in trying. The dish might not taste good, the first time you cook it. But the second time you will definitely mix accurate ingredients to cook a perfect taste. Finger licking perfect taste!

You just can’t say ‘no’ to cook when you yourself are a foodie. I am a foodie. I’ve tried many different recipes and enjoyed cooking them all. I like spicy food as much as desserts.

Parathas and chapatis taste awesome when served hot. They taste the best when served with a chatni, pickle or curd. To kick off, I tried making a chatni, a very simple yet spicy recipe.

Here is the recipe for hot-n-spicy groundnut chatni that I made:


  • Grinded groundnuts-1 bowl
  • Garlic-8 to 10 petals
  • Oil-2 tablespoon
  • Rai seeds-1 tablespoon
  • Salt- 1/3 tablespoon
  • Black pepper- 1/3 tablespoon
  • Red chili powder- 1/3 tablespoon
  • Sugar- 1/4 tablespoon


  • Heat the oil in a small pan
  • Boil the rai seeds until they make noise
  • Fry the garlic petals in oil until they turn reddish brown
  • Pour the oil-rai seeds-garlic mixture in the bowl of grinded groundnuts
  • Add salt, black pepper, red chili powder and sugar as per taste
  • Stir well to get an equal taste
  • Serve the chatni with hot chapatis or parathas

As the chatni was ready, I ate it and …wow! The crunchy little pieces of garlic made my tongue twist. It tasted sugary spicy, mouth-watering!

Hot-n-spicy groundnut chatni, just what the parathas in your plate wanted!
