Garlic Peanut Chutney

A staple at my Maharashtrian in-law's home. A tsp of this chutney is always served on the plate at lunch. It adds a magical spicy taste to simple rice, dal and vegetables. Any curry which tastes bland tastes so much better with a pinch of this chutney

Garlic Cloves - 1/2 cup
Roasted Peanuts - 1/4 cup
Sesame Seeds - 1 tbsp
Red Chilli Powder - 1/2 tsp
Cayenne Pepper - 1/4 tsp
Peanut Oil - 1 tsp

Mix all the above except the peanut oil and pulse a few times.

Heat oil in a pan and saute the mixture over low heat for around 10 minutes.

Once the garlic starts getting light brown and slightly crispy, remove from heat. Can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a week.
