Roasted Peanut Salad
This is a traditional Indian street food. It is served wrapped in a hand made paper cone or in a banana leaf. Use the roasted peanuts as a base and add cucumber, tomato and carrots to create a healthy side dish or salad. Make sure to dress the salad right before serving so the peanuts stay crunchy.
