How To Make Raja Special

Raja Special...a name that sounds special not because it's a king's favorite but because it's a recipe that is very simple yet very healthy! It's quick and very easy, too!


~Peanuts/Groundnuts (a cup)
~Tomatoes (medium, 2 pieces)
~Onions (medium, 2)
~Green chili (1 or 2 pieces)
~Lemon juice (1, small) or vinegar (a few drops)
~Mango powder or chat masala (a tsp.)
~Black pepper powder (a tsp.)
~Salt (to taste)
~Olive oil (a tsp.)
~Coriander leaves (finely chopped)

What to do?

1. In an oilless pan, stir fry peanuts till they make a crackling sound -a sound of splitting. Don't roast.
2. Wash all vegetables. Slice onions and tomatoes into long and thin pieces.
3. Chopped green chili into very small pieces. Add to onions and tomatoes.
4. Add lemon juice, mango powder, black pepper powder, salt, olive oil, coriander leaves and mix.
5. Add the roasted peanuts and sprinkle a few drops of vinegar.
6. Mix well and serve.

Enjoy a healthy meal (We generally have this as a meal rather than a snack, which mostly is the case)!
