Badam Sadheko (Roasted Peanuts Salad)

Introduction

I am not really a peanut fan by nature and I hate peanut butter, but the recipe I am going to share is pretty tasty than I thought. And, trust me, this is very easy to make and goes with every occasion. Also, it has been one of the quick appetizer to go to for me at least, and I hope you will like it too! Try it and share your experiences.

Makes about 4 - 5 servings

  • Garlic: 3-4 cloves (diced)
  • Mustard Oil: 1 tsp

Once roasted as below, turn off the heat. Make sure it's not over-roasted.

If you have roasted peanuts, you may skip the above steps.

You will need to remove the shells of the peanuts by hand once it's cooled off. Throw away the shells and use the remaining to mix with the spices (1/3 cup chopped red onions, 1 tbsp diced ginger, 3-4 diced garlic cloves, 2 diced green chilies, salt, chili powder and unheated mustard oil)
Add spices
Mix well.

Badam sadheko (Roasted Peanut Salad) is ready to be served!

Quick Note I would like to pass along: It is always better to mix the spices only when you are ready to serve so as to avoid sogginess and still taste fresh and crunchy. Enjoy!
