Dry roast peanuts on medium heat for around 8 minutes. Stir continuously until they turn brown. Allow to cool.
If you wish to enhance the flavour further, you can roast the dry chillies and cumin separately for less than a minute. This step is optional.
In a blender/ grinder jar, add the garlic cloves, dry red chillies, cumin seeds, chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt to taste. Blend to get a powder-like texture.
Peel the peanuts thoroughly and add them to the rest of the ingredients. Grind further until you get a coarse consistency, free of lumps.
Pair shengdana chutney with your snacks and meals. Store it in an airtight container in a cool place for future use.
