Starter snack

For serving as starters before dinner or even as a snack with tea its a tasty accompaniment.Its a non fried tasty snacking.

200gm peanuts---roasted----normally if you put them in microwave at high for 3 minutes, shaking them once in between-----they are well done.
2 tomatoes finely chopped
1onion finely chopped
3 green chillies finely chopped
half cup cucumber finely chopped.
2-3 tbsp. green coriander-finely chopped
salt to taste
just before serving mix everything together and the sprinkle the lemon juice and serve it garnished with green coriander. its a very tasty, crunchy snack. In the garnishing you may add Bhujia also.

delicious and mouth watering salad! If only sunny boy wasn't allergic to it. We have stopped using peanuts as we recently got to know of his (mild) allergyto it. But, I have a packet of it and I might make it for hubby. Love the combination with fresh onion and all.

Renu said...

Even I have some allergy, and some people keep suggesting that may be its because of peanuts, I dont want to confirm it ,a s they are my life:).

This is a very tasty cruncy dish, I like even bhelpuri with some crunch:)
