Green chili chutney ( side dish for dosa/ idli)

Its been a hectic month for me.  Slowly settling down... ok wait.. we didn't got our goods yet!! :( . Our goods arrived before then we expected ,but as our house is not ready ,so we were not able to accept them. Thats it,goods delivery was postponed. i hope they will deliver them at least by this weekend.  So these days my kitchen ware consists of  2 pans ,1 electric cooker and 2 small steel vessels. Luckliy we kept Mixi and chopper etc things in car before it was shipped .
Ok enough of this move stuff.  I like having 'Chutneys'  in lunch box. I'm a big fan of them.Though I like pickles but don't want them everyday because of amounts of oil/Salt they have.  I like to preapare everyday curries bit bland. They are mostly steamed and seasoned.  so these chutneys provide a bit a spice/hotness .

This recipe i read long time ago in a local magazine. I thought it might taste spiced up version of peanut chutney. But no ,not at all. Try this and taste your self.

This goes well with Dosa / Idli or Vada
