Chaat,  hmmmm..mouth watering & utterly irresistible..!
Everyone likes to eat chat, there are many varieties of chat, and here is very easy and tasty mouthwatering  peanuts  chat. 
As its exam time for my kids, I have to rake my brains for healthy tasty nutritious recipes so keep them with required energy. This makes a scrumptious, crispy snack – all kids love the tangy taste of this chat, which is loaded with protein, a must nutrient for a growing child.
This great snack can be made in a jiffy and also opt for preparing whenever we feel like munching something hot & spicy. It makes a perfect accompaniment to a relaxed evening cup of  garma  garam  chai  or  coffee..!
Lets start with this lovely mouthwatering chat..!
Ingredients:
  • Raw shelled Peanuts                             - 1 cup

  86. Chaat Masala and peanuts are two of my favourite things. I have a Chucumber recipe that is very similar (http://darknibblesandbytes.blogspot.com.au/2007/12/chucumber.html). If you dont want to cook your peanuts in the pressure cooker, you could use the method from my recipe. If you leave the peanuts in the mix they go soft on their own (its great the next day!).

    A cup of cooked chickpeas would be great in this.


    Awesome recipe as always. Love your blog!
