7-8 stalks of garlic greens
½ cup roasted, skinned peanuts
½ cup beaten yogurt
1 large chilli
1 tsp chopped ginger or ginger paste
a pinch sugar
salt to taste
1 tsp oil
½ tsp cumin seeds
coriander leaves for garnishing
1. Wash the garlic greens. Remove the roots at the end and discoloured stalks, if any.
2. Mix all ingredients upto salt in a grinder and grind until you have a smooth paste. Take this paste out into a serving bowl.
3. Heat the oil in a Tadka ladle. Once hot, add the cumin seeds to it and take the ladle off heat. The cumin seeds will pop in the hot oil. Let the oil cool a little.
4. Add the tadka to the garlic greens-peanut paste. Either mix and serve or leave the tadka on top; it makes for an interesting garnish.
In case you do not have access to garlic greens, you could use regular garlic too. The chutney will still taste good.
