Are you nuts about peanuts? Then you will love this simple boiled peanuts mildly tempered with with mustard seeds, chillies, curry leaves and garnished with coconut. Yes, sharing one more ‘sundal’ recipe that can be made during Navratri.
Not only are they high in protein, peanuts contain the ‘good’ fat i.e. Omega-3 and Omega-6 that is very much needed for a healthy heart. The skin of the peanut is rich in antioxidants so the best way to eat peanuts is with the skin on; roasted or boiled.
We all love peanuts in the roasted form, try the boiled peanuts that is so versatile, it can be added to salads or combined with vegetables to create side dishes.
Raw peanuts must be soaked for few hours before cooking them to make the sundal.
Peanuts are technically not a nut but a legume that grows on the ground unlike the nuts that grow on trees.
