This is a north Karnataka style peanut or groundnut chutney powder. But this chutney powder or chutney pudi is popular and familiar by name shenga hindi. You can find many more north Karnataka recipes on this website.

Preparing home made chuteny pudi or powder is very easy and is a life saver too!! Shenga or peanuts are very tasty. I love to eat peanuts and I add them in different recipes. Peanuts are high in energy and rich in nutrients. But it is always safe to eat in moderation. There is one more south Karnataka style peanut chutney powder. I will share that recipe also soon.

I prefer home made masala powders and I have already posted udupi rasam powder, bisi bele bath powder, Mysore rasam powder, sambar powder, vangi bath powder, agase or flax seeds chutney powder and puliyogare powder recipes. Do check them as well.
