Peanut salad

I make sure I do a salad once in a week. I use to send salad for kids snack box. A very healthy and protein rich salad. If you are not allergic to peanuts try this salad and you will sure love it. Every bite taste so good and healthy too....

  • Boiled raw peanuts - 1 cup
  • Grated carrot - 1/2 cup
  • Chopped cucumbers - 1/2 cup
  • Chopped tomatoes - 1/4 cup
  • Chopped cilantro - 2 tbsp
  • Grated coconut - 1 tbsp
  • Lemon juice - 1 tsp
  • Pepper and salt - to taste

To temper: (optional)
  • Oil - 1 tsp
  • Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
  • Urad dal - 1/2 tsp
  • Green chilly -1
  • Asafoetida - a pinch


Boil the peanuts with salt and discard the water. Keep the vegetables ready. In a mixing bowl, mix all the vegetables, cilantro and boiled peanuts and add lemon juice to it. Give a nice stir.

Add grated coconut, salt and ground pepper to taste. If tempering, heat a pan and add the ingredients given under 'to temper' accordingly. Transfer to salad.

Toss well and serve.


  • If  raw peanuts are not in hand, use the regular peanuts by soaking overnight and pressure cooking with salt.
  • Tempering is for extra flavor.
