Peanut Sundal

Peanut Sundal is one of my favorite sundal dish. Actually all sundal is my favorite :-). This is easy, tasty as well as healthy, perfect for any day. This recipe was pending in my draft from few days, and finally I am posting it today. 

Have a look at my other Sundal Recipes here:

Peanut 1 cup {raw peanut, not roasted}
Dry Red Chilies 2
Oil 1 tbsp
Mustard Seeds 1 tsp
Asafoetida a pinch
Curry Leaves few
Green Chili 1, slit
Salt as per taste
Freshly Grated Coconut 2 tbsp
Freshly Chopped Coriander leaves 
Water for soaking 2 cups + for pressure cooking 2 cups

Soak the peanuts in water for about 2 hours.

Now pressure cook with enough water and salt, for around 5 - 6 whistles.
Once the pressure is released, open and drain the water and keep aside.
{Note: The peanut should not have been pressure cooked too much, nor it should be raw enough that the bite gives a raw feel}.

Now lets temper it..
In a pan heat oil. Once heated add mustard seeds. As it starts crackling, add asafoetida, curry leaves, dry red chilies {tear it and add}, and the slit green chili.

Now add the boiled peanuts and saute properly, so that the tempering properly gets mixed with the peanuts.

Add a pinch of salt again{check salt as per taste}.

Now add freshly grated coconut and mix well. Switch off the flame.

Garnish  with freshly chopped coriander leaves and Serve hot.
