Peanut Salad / Chaat

 A delicious salad with boiled peanuts , red onions and tomatoes. Full on flavour and no oil , guilt free snack to munch on.


  • 1 Cup boiled peanuts
  • 1 small red onion chopped finely
  • 1/2 tomato de-seeded and chopped finely
  • 1 Carrot shredded finely
  • 2 Tablespoons raw mango chopped
  • Juice of 1/2 Lemon
  • 1 Teaspoon chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 Teaspoon red chilli powder / paprika according to your taste
  • a big pinch of cumin powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Chaat masala
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt / kaala namak


1. Boil peanuts : you need raw peanuts that ate not dehydrated and still fresh. Add peanuts to a large pot and enough water to cover. Add salt and then boil the peanuts until they are soft but not mushy
2. In a bowl add peanuts, red onions, raw mango, tomato and cilantro leaves and toss them gently
3. Add red chilli powder, cumin powder and chaat masala, salt and toss again
4. Sprinkle lemon juice and toss the salad one more time
5. Top the salad with shredded carrots sprinkled on the top and serve immediately. This salad needs to be served immediately otherwise it will turn soggy because we are adding onion and tomatoes. If you are planning to serve it at later point, do all the chopping and keep the ingredients ready in the refrigerator with cling wrap and do the final assembling and tossing at the time of serving
