Munch into the crunchy deliciousness of peanuts online through SaleBhai at best prices
Peanut is undoubtedly one of the most popular snacks in the world. The humble peanut is eaten around the year and around the globe. In our country, it is known by different names in different regions. Some of the popular ones are dana, sing dana, mungfali, moongfali, and also sing. We munch on them on long journeys by trains and busses – in small paper bags with sachets of salt, chatting as we go, sharing them with fellow passengers as we swap stories. Moong phali, as they are lovingly called in some parts of India, are loved because they have a very satisfying nutty flavour that is hard to resist.
The part we eat and love grows underground. Peanut seeds or kernels grow into plants about 18-20 inches tall, which bear delicate flowers at the lower portion of the plant. These flowers then mature into what we harvest as peanuts. In India, peanuts or groundnuts as they are often called, are available throughout the year as they are harvested during March and October in a two-crop cycle.
Some love to crack peanuts and eat them unsalted. They insist that the fun lies in breaking the pods and popping the kernels into the mouth. Others like them cracked and flavoured with salt or pepper. The way the peanut is eaten has evolved through the years and many food industries come up with interesting ways to keep this protein-rich legume a part of our daily lives. How ever you choose to eat them, they are fun to eat and as your doctors will tell you, good for your health too.
They are rich in monounsaturated fats and are a good source of vitamin E, niacin, foliate, and manganese. They are a rich source of antioxidants too. A research in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry showed that regular consumption of peanuts provides protection against Alzheimer’s disease and other age-related cognitive decline.
So grab a fistful of these crunchy, delicious, and wholesome food. The idea is to enjoy them with any drink or munch on as a standalone snack, use them as toppings on food items and even create new snacks of your own. You can even chop them and add them to salads, grind them to make interesting chutneys, add them to your baking recipes and sprinkle them on ice creams.
Peanut butter is another gift that someone great has bestowed upon us. This delicacy makes it to nearly every lunch box, graces nearly every tray of hors d’oeuvres that a host would serve, and generally makes every raid to the fridge a fulfilling one!
Peanuts make great travel companions, game time snacks, munchies for any time of the day and are the best thing to serve when guests come home unannounced.
Food manufacturers come up with hundreds of varieties of snacks and peanut dressings. They wrap them, crack them, coat them, and powder them. They add different ingredients to make them even more enticing than they already are. But we are already sold, aren’t we?
The classic roasted peanuts with salt and pepper is one example. It is enjoyed with tea or coffee or with any hot or cold beverage. The salt-and-pepper coating on the peanut is always just the perfect seasoning each time.
Then there is the roasted peanuts spicy masala that we just love to eat. We can just pour it out of the packet and eat it like that or add some chopped onions and diced tomatoes, chopped green chillies, green coriander and a few drops of lemon juice and voila, a different snack ready in minutes!
Another spicy treat is the schezwan sing bhujia. This a crunchy and delicious deep-fried snack made with sing or peanuts – coated with a blend of gram flour or besan with special Szechuan spice mix. The nutty flavour of peanuts and the Chinese spice make a wonderful combination that can be enjoyed with beverages. This snack can also be used as a topping on other dishes to add some zing.
For those who like their peanuts to be chatpatta, the chat masala dana is a choice not to be missed. The peanuts are shelled and the flavours are fresh, hot and sour. These dana are split in half, deep-fried, and thoroughly mixed with chat masala. Crunchy and spicy, they go well with tea, coffee, and again, other beverages too.
The health conscious need not lose heart. All this talk of deep frying and spices does not necessarily leave you out of the world of peanuts. Try the dry boiled peanuts. These are a healthy alternative when it comes to snacking. Popular not just in India but across the world, this snack is good for those who prefer to stay away from fried things. Unshelled peanuts are boiled in brine then eaten when still wet after cracking the softened layer. Try the Maharana Stores Dry Boiled Peanuts to get a taste of the real thing.
