|BOILED PEANUT SALAD|
I recently came to know that boiled peanuts (the original green ones boiled in shells) are a very popular snack in Southern US too...and they are even sold on stands by the roadside..how exciting is that?! Will try to find some when I visit next!
Though peanuts have nuts in their name, they are in fact legumes and hence this goes as an entry to the popular My Legume Love Affair, a brainchild of Susan of 'The Well Seasoned Cook' hosted this month by Siri of Siri's corner.
Here goes the recipe for boiled peanut salad...
Raw Peanuts - I cup
Onion - 2 tablespoons (chopped finely)
Tomato- 2 tablespoons (chopped finely)
Green chili - 1 or 2 (chopped finely)
Fresh lemon juice- 1 teaspoon or to taste
Salt- to taste
Soak the peanuts for at least 2- 3 hours
Boil the soaked peanuts till done- (I pressure cook till 3 whistles)
Drain and let them cool
Now add onion, tomato, green chili,lemon and salt
