Peanut Chutney

This is a simple and easy chutney recipe.I remember when i was in school my Telugu  friend used to bring this with idlis and we all used to grab the idlis for the chutney.All of us used to like it so much.It tastes good with idlis and dosas.I have added a onion along with the peanuts so that is not thick like the peanut butter.It is such a big hit in my house.
