Peanut Masala | Groundnut Masala Recipe

Chats have been my all-time favorite. Last year we had been to Kadalekai Parishe and we had bought quite a lot of peanuts. We had it by boiling the peanuts in salt water. But the peanuts were not getting over. With those remaining peanuts I made this instant chat and I wanted to share it with you all. Next time when you go for Parishe, don’t worry if you have too many peanuts. Anyhow by then you would have learnt, what to do with them after reading this post! ;)


  • 2 cups Peanuts/Groundnut
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tea spoon lemon juice
  • 1 tea spoon red chilli powder
  • ½ tea spoon garam masala
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tea spoon Coriander leaves/Cilantro for garnishing

Pressure cook the groundnuts for about 2 whistles.
Once it cools down, mix the groundnut along with other ingredients.
Garnish with Cilantro leaves and serve.

Note: Use of red chilli powder can be varied depending on your spice level preference.
