Garlic Peanut powder

This one is keepers. An alternative for accompaniments with breakfast. Tastes great with almost all the breakfasts. I love to sprinkle some over even pohe and it takes the snack o another level. Most of the people know it as an side dish to our famous Vada pav. Great to sprinkle over podi dosa of you are short of time to make chutneys.

Stays fresh for a month or two.


Peanuts: 1 1/2  cup

Garlic pods: 10-12 pods peeled

White Sesame seeds: 2 tbsp

Red Chili powder: 1/2 to 3/4 cup (according to spice needed, adjust)

Salt: as needed

Sugar: 1 tbsp (optional)



  1. Roast the peanuts and de skin them. When roasted on low flame the skin comes easily.
  2. Roast the white sesame seeds on a low flame.
  3. In a mixie jar, take the garlic, sesame seeds and peanuts and grind for 1 minute. Add the chili powder,salt sugar and keep whipping till they all mix well.
  4. Store in a air tight jar.

Notes: Don’t grind too much as the peanut would start leaving oil. Just whip and grind coarsely.




Hi This is my chance to introduce myself. I am Parvathi, the author/owner of this space. I blog here about recipes that are simple yet tasty. I try to improvise on recipes without compromising on taste. Cooking is my passion. Though I am not very perfect, I love the imperfections and as they say “there’s always scope of better”. I like to follow that. I believe there’s a story for each recipe and the way it is developed. Also creativity is the secret ingredient of cooking. My inspiration for cooking comes from my mom. As cliched as it sounds, for me she is the best cook. 🙂 Cooking for me is a stress buster. Hoping this space help you too whip some amazing dishes and earn praises from your loved ones.
