Hot Boiled Peanuts / Roasted Peanuts

I am sending this recipes to Tomato Blues - Celebrating Street Foods Event.

Roasted Peanut :
raw unshelled peanut - 1/4 kg
river bed sand - as required

Heat sand in the steel kadai, when the sand gets heated, add raw peanuts, mix well with sand. Keep stirring continuosly to avoid burning.Roasted peanuts ready in 10 minutes.

Sieve the peanuts and cool down to normal temperature. Now raosted peanuts are ready to eat.
This is how it is done by street vendors.

Boiled Shelled Peanuts
shelled fresh peanuts - 1/4 kg
water - enough to float the peanut
salt - 1 tbsp

Rinse the peanuts thoroughly with water.

Add shelled peanuts,salt,water together in a pot and slowly cook for 2 hours.

Drain the cooked peanuts from the salted water .

Healthy hot boiled peanuts are ready to serve. Remove the shells and eat up.

I always love to buy this hot boiled peanuts from the road side vendors. Ah! Yummy and Juicy..
