First Day of Navarathri – Peanut(Groundnut) Sundal
Peanut also known as “ground nut” is loaded with nutrients .It comes in handy for vegetarians because it is packed with protein and also serves as a good source of fiber. This is one very simple recipe that my mom always made on rainy days. Takes just few minutes to make. A bowl of this and a cup of hot tea will be awesome for rainy days.. It is also a healthy snack for toddlers. There is something about steamed hot peanuts. Even now, I always dry roast a bottle of peanuts with salt and store them. It serves as an immediate energy boost when I most need it. Peanut sundal is one of the easiest snack that you can enjoy at all times.
