Default Munchable Peanut Salad - Sundal

Munchable Peanut Salad - Sundal

For most vegetarians in Tamil Nadu, peanuts form an important part of
the diet. Plain boiled peanuts, sprinkled with just a little sat and
cayenne pepper, are sold from small wooden carts by eager vendors.
They are plain and good. This is a somewhat more elaborate version of
the same idea. Sundals with variations in seasonings can be made out
of soaked and boiled beans, chickpeas and dried peas, even split peas.
They are sold in the evenings on the beach.
I like to put a blow out for people to nibble with drinks. I also
leave several teaspoons for people to dig in with. Nothing is fried
here so this makes for nutritious snack food as well.

Ingredients
200g/7oz/ 1 1/2 cups raw, shelled, skinless peanuts
1 tsp salt or to taste
4 shallots (50g/2oz) peeled and cut into fine slivers
2 medium-sized tomatoes, finely chopped
2 tsp cayenne pepper
4 tbsp lime juice

Method
Soak the peanuts in warm water to cover for 1 hour. Drain. Put the
peanuts in a saucepan. Add water to cover well. Add 1 tsp of the salt
an bring to the boiul. Cover, turn the heat down and cook for about 20
minutes or until the peanuts are tender. Drain. Put the peanuts in a
bowl.

Add all the remaining ingredients, using just as much salt is needed
for a good balance of salt and sour. Mix well.
