Ground nut chutney

Ground nut chutney is made often in my house. Whenever it is idlies for breakfast, ground nut chutney should be there. So I had to find a simple recipe by trial and error. I leave the skin on the ground nut to retain the nutrients. It gets done in a jiffy.

Ground nuts (with skin): 1 cup 
Green chillies, chopped: 1 no.
Cumin seeds (Jeera): 1/2 tsp.
Garlic pods: 3 - 4 nos.
Finely chopped Coriander leaves: 1 tbsp.
Salt: to taste 
For garnishing (tadka):
Oil: 1 tbsp.
Cumin seeds: 1/2 tsp.
Mustard (Rayi) seeds: 1/2 tsp.
Red chilli (optional): 1 broken into 2 pieces

Roast groundnuts, Green chilli pieces,Cumin, garlic pods, and salt. Put them in a mixie jar (small). Add salt. Grind to a powder. Add water and grind it to a paste. Take it into a bowl and mix finely chopped coriander leaves to it.
Heat oil in a pan and put cumin and mustard seeds, when they start to splutter, add red chilli pieces. Add enough water to make a semi solid consistency. Pour the oil mixture over the chutney and mix well.
Ideal with Idlies. Can also be eaten with dosa, rice or rotis.
