Boiled Peanuts (Jiggnut) and Potato Snack

The Humble Peanut also known as groundnut, jiggnut, kalaka, Kadlakai etc is a powerhouse of antioxidants. Peanuts are not vegetables in the true sense of the word, but they are used in a variety of Indian dishes. Either fried, boiled, roasted, etc, peanuts are the evergreen "TIME PASS SNACK" . Peanuts are very rich in antioxidants. They are a very good source of monounsaturated fats, the type of fat that decreases the risk of cardiovascular disease and lowers LDL responsible for transporting cholesterol to the arteries.  Regular consumption of peanuts can actually help to ward off certain diseases and cancers, and help boost energy levels. Peanuts are also good sources of vitamin E, Foliate, calcium, protein, potassium and magnesium. They are also high in fibre which aid gastrointestinal health. Eating peanuts just a few times a week can prevent the formation of gallstones, and can lower the risk of colon cancer.

Boiled / Roasted Peanuts are an all time favourite snack enjoyed by both young and old. Easily available at street corners, parks, fairs, markets, beaches etc. There's always a crowd around the Peanut seller!

Here is a simple recipe for a tasty Boiled Peanut and Potato Snack

1 cup peanuts, shelled and boiled
1 potato, boiled and chopped
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 medium tomato, finely chopped
1 green chillie finely chopped
Salt to taste
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
Half a lemon
A few sprigs of coriander leaves finely chopped for garnishing

Mix all the above ingredients together gently in a suitable bowl. Serve fresh as a snack when the peanuts and potatoes are still warm.
