Heat the oil in a pan and fry  red chilli whole 30 secs. Then add in green chillies, tomatoes  and cover to cook till they are soft and mushy.

Add in tamarind paste, salt, turmeric powder, jaggery and cook for 1 min.Remove the mixture from the pan and cool it down then add in roasted peanuts and required amount of water to make it into a smooth paste.

For seasoning, heat oil in a pan, when the oil is medium hot (test by adding one mustard seed, it should pop right away then you can say that the oil is ready). Then add in the mustard seeds, allow to pop followed by cumin seeds and curry leaves and fry for 10 secs. Immediately add this seasoned oil into the chutney. Serve with Sponge dosa, idli or any other breakfast recipe.
