Boiled Peanut Chat

Boiled peanut chat is a spicy, tangy, delicious, lip smacking Indian street style food. This is one versatile dish that can be served as a snack or appetizer or salad or just as side dish for drinks.
Being away from these are the kind of foods I miss a lot and I try to recreate them at home. Preparing this chat is super easy and always makes me feel nostalgic. Give the recipe a try and I bet you will be hooked...


1 cup raw Peanuts(already shelled peanuts)
4 tbsp grated Carrot
1/4 cup finely chopped Onion
1/4 cup finely chopped Tomato
2 tbsp finely chopped Mint
4 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves
Juice of 1 lemon(Use extra lemon if you like it tangier)
2 Green chilies finely chopped
Salt per taste


Soak peanuts in water for about an hour.
Pressure cook peanuts with little salt and water for upto two whistles. Once the pressure is off, open the lid and drain all the water. Let the peanuts cool. 
Add in all the ingredients and give it a good mix with a spatula or spoon. Check and adjust seasonings per your taste.


All the ingredients can be adjusted to you tastes. The recipe is kind of right mixture for my family.
