Chutney for Chutney Sandwich

This is my friend, Mina's recipe. This is for making chutney sandwiches. I made them in the same food processor as the pesto.
You need
Coriander or Cilantro - 2 bunches, just cut of the ends and wash thoroughly (3 times under water and drained)
Green chillies - 10 to 12 (depending on your spice level
Skinned Peanuts - 1/2 cup
Garlic - 5 cloves
Salt - 1 to 2 Teaspoon (more or less)
Sugar - 1/2 Teaspoon
Lime - 2 to 3 (take the juice out and pour directly into food processor)
Just grind everything to a chutney, Do not add any water to this, if needed add more lime juice....
You can use this to make the famous bombay chutney sandwich......
In Chennai, in the 80's we used to get this outside Prince Plaza, Egmore.
It is so delicious, spread it on a slice of bread, top with
Slice of tomato
Slice of cooked potato
Slice of cucumber
top with a dash of salt and pepper
Top with one more slice of bread spread with this chutney.... Yumm..........
