Sprouted Fenugreek (Methi) Seeds & Raw Mango SaladBoiled Peanut Salad
A healthy, crunchy and an easy-to-make salad prepared from boiled peanuts and veggies. Peanuts add a crunch to any dish, be it in raw form, roasted or boiled.
We have added veggies to the boiled peanuts and presented the dish in a salad form. But if you want to pack this for a lunch box or tiffin then you can exclude the veggies. Boiled peanuts with a pinch of salt and chaat masala added also taste yummy. They are a great snack option that is filling and healthy. You can add any other veggies of your choice to this salad.
You can either present this salad chilled, at room temperature or warm. If you prefer to serve this as a warm salad, then add the boiled peanuts in the end and serve immediately. You can also boil the peanuts in advance and then microwave them for a few seconds before serving.
