Roasted Peanut Salad

Yippee!! I ll be traveling to India soon and I am thrilled to bits, so SO excited  There are lot of things I miss about India.

  Family and friends of course are at top of the list (Oh! Skype, what would we do without you)

My favorite food- Though we get Indian food and groceries here there are certain few things I am not contented with.One such thing is peanut salad. 

During my college days my friends & I used to go to this restaurant like once a week just to eat this. It was so funny that the waiters stopped giving us the menu card after few days and happily served us the salad. I made my version of this salad and although it wasn't really close to the one I love, my husband loved it :)

So what exactly is this roasted peanut salad ?

It's simply a salad which is protein rich, scrumptious and refreshing since it is made of fresh ingredients & super easy to whip up.

  • roasted peanuts - 2 cups
  •  chopped onion - 1 cup
  • chopped tomatoes - 1 cup
  • chopped cucumber - 1 cup
  • finely chopped green chilli - 1 or 2
  • juice of lemon - 1 tbsp
  • chaat masala - to taste(optional)
  • salt - to taste
  • finely chopped cilantro - to garnish 

Add the roasted peanuts in a bowl.

Add onions & green chillies

 some tomatoes
and some cucumber
add salt, lime juice & chaat masala
 Toss well and garnish with finely chopped cilantro.

Serve it as tea time or mid night snack with some drinks
