Shengdanyache Peethale (शेंगदाण्याचे पीठले) - Groundnut Onion side dish

I did not try Shengdanyache Peethale (शेंगदाण्याचे पीठले) until recently though my Mom kept telling me how tasty it is. As kids I did not see my Mom making this due to the choosy children around, she mostly used to stick to sure recipes that we finish our food quickly.
Other day I was running out of vegetables stock and wanted to have something spicy and tasty, plus I had groundnuts handy, so I decided to try this recipe. And with Mom's guidance on call, this turned out to be sooo yummy side dish that now I just find reasons to make it :P

Here is my new found rocking recipe for all you to enjoy..



Ingredients:
1. 1/2 cup groundnuts
2. 1 medium sized onion finely chopped
3. 4-5 cloves of garlic
4. 2 spoonful freshly chopped coriander
5. 1 green chilli, chopped
6. 1/2 tbsp turmeric powder
7. Around 3 tbsp of red chilli powder(you can vary based on how much spicy you want)
8. 3 tbsp oil
9. 1/2 tbsp rai
10. Salt to taste
11. Pinch of sugar
12. Ping on hing

Preparation:
1. Roast the groundnuts till slightly brown, cool and grind into slightly coarse powder
2. Heat oil in a pan, add rai and as it crackles add hing and green chilli
3. Add finely chopped onion and fry till it becomes golden brown
4. Add chopped garlic and fry for another 1-2 mins
5. Add turmeric powder, red chilli powder, sugar and salt and mix well
6. Add the roasted groundnut powder now and mix. Add 1/4 cup water, cover and cook for3-4 few mins, occasionally stirring. You may adjust water to get peethala consistency
