  1. For more Peanut flavor use peanut oil and reduce the coconut
  2. You can also dry roast peanuts at low flame for 4-5 minutes
  3. Adjust the salt if you are going to use salted peanuts
  4. Grind chutney with little water. Add extra water to the ground chutney
  5. You can use a small piece of tamarind instead of tamarind paste
  6. For store bought tamarind paste adjust the quality according to it's sourness
  7. You can sauté onions and skip the coconut
  8. You can also sauté 1 tbsp of Urad dal and Channa dal and prepare chutney. Skip coconut in that case
  9. Tamarind gives a nice tangy taste to the chutney instead you can also sauté tomatoes and add it to the chutney
  10. Curry leaves/ coriander leaves/ mint leaves can be added for additional flavor. Sauté till they wilt
  11. If you are using green Chilli you need not saute
  12. Ginger, asafoetida, and garlic helps for digestion so if you are skipping garlic use the other two
