Roast the peanuts lightly. Rub the nuts with a wad of cloth when a bit cooled. This will remove the thin covering easily. Blow out the skins, sieve with a large-holed sieve if any skins are leftover. Put all the ingredients, with the nuts, in a dry grinder. Grind very coarsely.
Transfer the contents to a mortar and pestle. Store in a clean dry jar.
Serve dry with rice. Or mix into some plain yogurt to make thick chutney.This may be served with snacks like vadas or bhajias.
