Peanuts Chaat ~ Beach Style

Peanuts Chaat

No trip to the beach is complete without this quintessential “Manga Thenga Pattani Sundal”.  But I love this one which they sell in beaches. It is spicy, tangy and hot and a pleasure to munch on from the paper cones in which they serve while looking at the waves crashing in...  I personally think that any chaat or street food is very healthy provided they are made in home, prepared in a healthy way without compromising on the taste.


Peanut Chaat ~ Beach Style

(Print this Recipe)

You’ll need:



Pressure cook the peanuts with two pinch salt for 1 whistle. The peanuts should be cooked well and soft to the touch but take care not to over cook as it will become mushy. I microwaved them***

Finely chop the onion, tomatoes and green chilli. Grate the carrots or you can also chop them fine. In a small bowl shake together red chili powder, chaat masala and salt together.

In another bowl combine boiled peanuts, onion, tomatoes, carrots and coriander leaves together. Sprinkle the red chili, chaat masala all over the peanut mixture and toss well so that they are all mixed up.

Now add the lemon juice and toss well. Serve piping hot.
