Danyachi Usal/Maharashtrian Peanut Curry

After going through my yesterday's post, you might have guessed that today's post might be an another North Indian side dish, yes you are rite. Today's post comes from Maharashtra, this dish is very simple to make, a fasting food of this region. No onions,tomatoes or garlic is used in this curry,obviously a quick dish to make. Actually while i was going through one of the Tarla Dalal's cook book called 'cooking under 10minutes' i noticed this simple peanut curry. Peanuts are my favourite, i never think twice to make dishes with peanuts as i like it very much. When i went through this dish, the simplicity of this dish attracted me immediately and the best part of this dish is there is no chopping, so no tears while chopping onions. A simple grounded paste with coconut,green chillies and ginger is much needed to bring the flavor to this easy breezy dish.Sending to MLLA#76 guest hosted by Nupur, event by Susan and Lisa..
