If You are looking for a quick, tasty and healthy snack/chaat recipe, then this Peanut Chaat Recipe/Boiled Peanut Chaat is one such recipe. Peanut Chaat is so refreshing and very tasty snack recipe with lovely flavors, colorful combo of veggies, fruits and spices blend. If you have cooked peanuts in hand, then you can make this peanut chaat in less than 10 minutes. This Peanut chaat is not only a healthy snack but it can also served as a healthy salad for meal. I usually have this Peanut Chaat or Channa Chaat or Black Eye Beans Carrot Salad for evening snack cum early dinner. Its been 3 years we completely stopped eating dinner or after 6.30-7 pm. Once in a while or on special occasions, party we don't mind but in a regular basis we follow this strictly.  So I prefer some filling snack and nothing can beat healthy chaats right? I also eat Fruit Salad with Mixed Nuts & Seeds. Now off to the Peanut Chaat recipe..

Peanut Chaat Recipe
Prep Time : 15 Minutes | Cook Time : Nil
Recipe Category : Snack/Salad | Serves 2


  1. Raw Peanuts   1 Cup
  2. Onion, finely chopped  1/4 cup 
  3. Tomato, deseeded finely chopped  1/4 cup
  4. Cucumber,  chopped 1/4 cup
  5. Green chilli 1 or 2 (finely chopped)
  6. Carrot, shredded    1/4 cup
  7. Raw Mango, shredded   1/4 cup or less
  8. Lime Juice  1 Tbsp
  9. Cilantro, finely chopped 2 Tbsp
  10. Chaat Masala  3/4 tsp
  11. Jeera Powder   1/2 tsp
  12. Kashmiri Chilli Powder 1 tsp
  13. Salt to taste
This is a basic chaat, no need of green chutney or sweet tamarind chutney just the above ingredients is more than enough for a tasty healthy snack.
Soaking Peanuts is optional, you can also directly cook the raw peanuts in pressure cooker for 3-4 whistles.
But soaking for 15-30 or 1 hour will help to cook the peanuts better.
You can also add a cup of boiled potato/aloo & corn kernels.
Adjust spices to your taste, the above measurement will give you a medium spicy chaat. For less spicy skip green chillies.
You can also add a tsp of honey or jaggery syrup to the chaat. 

  • First take 1 cup Raw Peanuts in a bowl, and add enough water and let them soak for minimum 10 minutes or 1 hour is more than enough to get soft boiled peanuts.
  • After soaking just rinse them in water and transfer the soaked and washed peanuts to a cooker and pressure cook for 1 or 2 whistles. I cooked them in InstantPot(Pressure Cook Mode - 10 Minutes) Let the pressure release naturally. 
  • Once done allow the peanuts to cool for a while then the peanuts are ready to make chaat.
  • In a wide mixing bowl, add in all the ingredients.
  • Toss everything well, taste it and adjust the spices/salt to your taste.
  • Serve right away or refrigerate it for 15 minutes and serve it chilled.
