A tasty snack recipe prepared using fresh groundnuts and very little spices….During the month of June ,July you get shelled groundnuts abundantly in market…you can boil this with salt and have it or can add to curries rice items etc…. But i am here with a mouthwatering, lip smacking recipe….


•1cup fresh shelled groundnuts
•3/4cup finely chopped onions
•3-4 finely chopped greenchille
•1/4tsp turmeric
•5/6 curryleaves
•1/4 tsp mustard seeds
•1.5tblsp oil
•2tblsp finely chopped coriander leaves
•1tblsp limejuice
•Salt to taste


▪First wash groundnuts under running water till all the mud are cleared…
▪Add this to cooker add water till groundnuts are immersed add salt…and take 3-4 whistles
▪Let the pressure go open lid and drain water , now deshell all groundnuts….and keep aside.
▪In a kadai add oil, musturd,let it splutter add curryleaves fry add onions and greenchilles fry till onions are pinkish then add turmeric ,boiled peanuts, salt a pinch (if required because we have already added while boiling)fry for 2 minutes and remove from flame..
▪Now add coriander leaves and limejuice
▪Your peanut masalas or usli is ready to eat…

*the boiled shelled peanuts can be eaten as it is….it also tastes awesome….
* You may find boring to deshell the groundnuts but the result after preparing usli is ultimate…
*if this is spicy tastes fantastic
* you can  also prepare this with dried groundnuts….for that soak groundnuts in water for 1-2hours then add to cooker with salt and take 3-5whistles… rest procedure remains same…
*best for kitty parties, get togethers….
