Belgian Endives & Coriander Chutney

Quite a new chutney which goes awesome as side dish along with hot steaming idlies,curd rice or crispy dosas..I tried out making this wonderful looking chutney for our dinner today, i combined coriander leaves, belgian endives,peanuts and few spices to prepare this fingerlicking chutney, actually i wanted to make some chutney just with peanuts and coriander leaves, but some belgian endives were sitting in my fridge sadly since few days..Without any idea, i combined those belgian endives along with peanut and coriander leaves to make this chutney, the final result was completely amazing,delicious,nutty and prefect chutney which tastes truly quite different from the usual chutney...

Belgian Endives & Coriander chutney

1cup Belgian endives (chopped)
1/4cup Coriander leaves (chopped)
1/4cup Peanuts (roasted)
3nos Dry red chillies
1tbsp Coriander seeds
1tsp Peppercorns
1tsp Urad dal
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
1no Tamarind (blueberry size)
Salt
Oil
1tsp Gingelly oil

Heat few drops of oil, fry the dry red chillies,coriander seeds, peppercorns,urad dal,cumin seeds one by one until they turns brown..Now fry the chopped belgian endives,tamarind piece and coriander leaves in the same pan..Now take all the ingredients together along with roasted peanuts,salt and grind as bit coarse paste..

I didnt tempered this chutney, just i mixed this chutney with gingelly oil and served with dosas..
