Drain the water, wash it one more time and add it to pressure cooker. Add enough water about 2.5 cups of water and required salt.

Pressure cook the groundnuts for 3 whistles or until done.

Wait for the steam to release all by itself and then open the lid. Drain the water and keep the cooked peanuts ready.

Meanwhile, heat a pan to dry roast the ingredients for grinding.  Add coriander seeds, channa dal, dry red chillies, cumin seeds and fry on low flame until nice aroma arises.

Finally add 1 tsp of grated coconut and switch off the stove. Stir really well and let it cool down completely.

Add the roasted ingredients to a mixer jar and grind it well. Keep it aside.
