Did you know:  Peanuts are actually legumes, although they possess qualities similar to other edible nuts such as pistachios and almonds. Peanuts provide high energy and contain high quantities of nutrients, minerals, antioxidants and vitamins. Also high in monounsaturated fatty acids, especially folic acid, peanuts help lower bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol in the blood. Studies also suggest that roasting or boiling peanuts enhances the antioxidant bio-availability by almost two to four-fold.

Serve Boiled Peanut Raita Recipe along with Chettinad Mint Potato Biryani or Punjabi Aloo Paratha.
