I always have curry leaves in my fridge and use it in my day to day cooking like dal, sabzi and kadhi.

The other day, I was looking into small booklet of Andhra recipes and I found this curry leaves chutney recipe.

That weekend, I made this chutney and also made rava uttapam to have it as a breakfast. We both just loved it. I have never imagined that this herb could made this delicious chutney.

The leftover I stored into the fridge. And after few days we had it with dhokla and it was good combination.

Here I have used added little amount of peanuts. But the original recipe was calling for sesame seeds. You can use any. You can use roasted bengal gram aka dalia too.

Other than curry leaves, coconut is added as a main ingredient.

The important thing to note while sauteing curry leaves, DO NOT overcook them. Otherwise chutney will not taste good.
