PEANUT CHAAT / PEANUT SALAD


INGREDIENTS:

Fresh shelled peanuts OR raw peanuts - 2 cups
Onion - 1 (optional)
Tomato - 1
Cucumber - 1
Carrot - 1 cup
Chopped coriander leaves - 2 tablespoons
Chat masala - 1/2 tsp. (OR) Olive oil - 1 tsp.
Juice of a lime
Salt - as per taste

METHOD:

NOTE: IF YOU ARE MAKING PEANUT CHAAT, USE CHAT MASALA. IF YOU ARE MAKING PEANUT SALAD USE OLIVE OIL.

Finely chop tomatoes, cucumber and onions (if using, I didn't use it). Grate the carrot.

Wash the peanuts well and soak it in water for 3 hours. Pressure cook with salt for 5 whistles. Drain the cooked water completely. Mix all other ingredients. Garnish with coriander leaves.
