Ingredients for peanut salad

Ingredients for peanut salad


In a salad bowl, add 1 ½ cup of roasted peanuts. (I prefer roasting peanuts than buying roasted one… you can save some money too.)

Chop onion, garlic, ginger, tomato, green/red chilies and coriander in small sizes, and add them in the bowl.

Add coriander and cumin powder mixture, turmeric powder and salt (according to your taste). Squeeze lime juice and pour a tbs of roasted mustard oil (preferred) or any vegetable oil. (I prefer the roasted mustard oil; it has a good smoky-nutty aroma and flavor)

Mix all the ingredients well. Transfer the peanuts salad into a plate to serve and garnish with fresh coriander leaves. You can have this healthy light snacks with beer or any other drinks.

    This recipe looks really good. I am thinking of making it. I am doing a low carb diet right now and this looks like it would go well with that diet. I am currently living in Korea and I think I can find most of these ingredients except Turmeric powder, I’m not sure exactly what that is but I will search. I’ll let you know how it is once I’ve tried it.

      Turmeric not necessarily required. It just for color, and has some unique flavor though. Looking forward to hearing from you. You can use similar recipe for roasted soybean too.
