Boiled Peanuts sundal – Verkadalai sundal

2014-10-05 14.02.02

So for the third week of the marathon, I have chosen the healthy tea time snacks. The fall weather is here in US. We are getting some drizzles too. Its lovely. A cup of mint tea with this hot peanuts sundal and a book.. yummmm. Got loads of books to read via this book tag.

This sundal can be done in no minute when your boiled peanuts ready. The time its takes to boil and removing them from the shells is the difficult and time consuming.
