      Hi Vishaal

  2. […] Shenga Hindi – Dry Peanut ‘Chutney’ […]

  3. Planters peanuts has MSG which is not good for health. Good recipes, but I think you need to exercise caution in the products you recommend.

    • Good Point! I think it is best to use raw peanuts..ofcourse peanuts have cholestrol in it too! 🙂

      • Thats for the recipe Harsha! Tastes great! 🙂

        BTW, just noticed you comment. Peanuts DO NOT have cholesterol! Only animal products will have colesterol. Peanuts are high in fat liek as any other nuts. But those are ‘good fats’ and high protein, which is good!

  4. I tried it with Planters… it tastes too good!! Next time I will try with raw peanuts… 😉

    also please send me jolad rotti recipe too…

  5. Thanks Harsha.. Very good tasty recipe..
