Peanut chaat /peanut salad recipe

   I made this during the weekend when we all felt like eating something spicy. Infact we were watching a movie that time and I needed to make something really quick.
    I just had to pressure cook the peanuts as we do for the chundals and throw in some spice powders along with some chopped onions and tomatoes. Hardly a recipe, so I just clicked the pictures of the final product. It was just delicious. A fuss free recipe, where I could do the things during the break without missing the movie!!!

    Wash the peanuts. Add the turmeric powder and salt. Cook in boiling water till it turns soft. Alternatively pressure cook till it softens.Also cook the potato till soft and chop into pieces.
     Drain the water by placing the peanuts in a sieve or strainer.
 Now place the dried peanuts and potatoes in a bowl. Add rest of the ingredients in this. Mix well. Adjust the quantity of salt accordingly.

      You can use black or white chick peas instead of peanuts and follow the same recipe. In that case you need to presoak the peas before pressure cooking.
