Weekend Lunch Series: Rava Idlis and Peanut Chutney

When I look for recipes, I look for those that I'll be able to whip up in the short time that I have over the weekend. Cooking an elaborate lunch is the last thing on my mind when there are bathrooms to be cleaned, lawn that needs mowing, laundry, vacuuming etc etc....
When I came across this recipe for Rava Idlis, I made and served these Idlis with some fabulous Peanut Chutney...what a combination that was!

Here is the recipe for the Peanut Chutney:

  • 1 cup: roasted and coarsely chopped Peanuts
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 medium size: tamarind, soaked in water
  • 1 tbsp: Idli Chutney Powder
  • 1/2 cup: Grated coconut
  • 1/4 tsp: Mustard Seeds, urad daal
  • Few Curry leaves
  • 1 tbsp: jaggery
  • Sesame Oil or any other Oil - 1 tsp
Grind the peanuts, garlic, onion, tamarind, coconut together, adding a little water if needed. In a pan, heat some oil and do the tadka of the mustard seeds, curry leaves, urad daal. Pour over the chutney. Add the jaggery and the chutney powder and adjust the seasonings. Serve with Idlis or Dosas.

Enjoy.

Peanut Chutney sounds delicious! I am a big fan of rava idly. Mom used to keep the rava with spices on hand, and then whip up a batch during busy weeknights.

GET TO KNOW: BLACK CUMIN SEEDS

black cumin seeds = royal cumin seeds = kala jeera = shahi jeera = saah jeera Pronunciation: KUH-min Notes: Indian cooks use this spice in many of their curries and tandoori dishes. It's darker and sweeter than ordinary cumin. To bring out its nutty flavor, it helps to toast the seeds briefly before using them. Substitutes: cumin (Not as sweet as black cumin.) OR nigella
