Solapur’s Shenga Chi Chutney-A Unique Chutney in Solapuri Style

Solapur is a highly regarded pilgrimage destination for Maharashtrians. Most of the tourists visiting Solapur are pilgrims, who are always on the lookout for vegetarian food. It is because of such high demand of vegetarian food that Solapur is home to a huge number of small and big vegetarian restaurants serving typical Maharashtrian cuisine. A major part of Solapur’s cuisine includes the use of peanuts due to its abundance. The use of peanuts is predominantly seen in Solapur itself and is not very common in other parts of Maharashtra. 

Among all its vegetarian restaurants, one dish is found in all of them, the famous Shenga Chutney. It is a special chutney made of peanuts and other spices. It is a sought after dish in the city and must be tried by every single pilgrim or tourist there. For those who do not have any plans of visiting this common religious destination of Maharashtra can prepare this delicacy at home with a few simple ingredients in 100% Solapuri style.

Let’s find out about the ingredients and method of preparing the Shenga Chutney of Solapur.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: No Cooking Time

Ingredients of Shenga Chutney

  • Roasted and De-skinned Peanuts (2 cups)

Preparing Shenga Chutney

Making this dish is as easy reading alphabets. Simply put all the ingredients in a grinder and mix it at the lowest speed so that the oil of the peanut is gradually released into the other ingredients. This oil helps turn the mixture into a soft paste and also the peanuts would stay slightly chunky.

Once the ingredients are grinded for 30-40 seconds, pour the chutney into an air tight container or cover the container with a muslin cloth. You can either have it instantly or save it for later. It is best enjoyed with Jowar Bhakri which is a very popular Chapati in Maharashtra made out of Jowar- a cereal grown in abundance across different districts of Maharashtra.

There is no specific list of restaurants that serves this dish. Almost all restaurants, irrespective of being vegetarian or non-vegetarian, serve Shenga Chi Chutney, which means ‘Chutney of Peanuts’. It is also made in large quantities in Solapur homes and stored for being consumed over a long period of time.

    Yes! Solapuri Shenga Chutney is a delicacy on its own. The taste is simply addictive.You can never stop with one serving. Instead of grinding in a mixer/grinder, this chutney tastes best when pounded.If you are making only a bowlful, then you can try pounding at home. But Solapurkars love Shenga chutney in kilos. So get it pound at the numerous pounding stations the city is bustling with!You can also get it delivered home if you mail me at the above address.bye!
