Waghya Peanuts are a lesser grown variety that carry tiger like stripes and hence the name ‘Waghya’. They have a sweet-salty buttery taste when roasted. Grown by small farmers, mostly for their own personal consumption, this variety of peanuts is nearly on the verge of extinction.
Roast the peanuts using some rock salt in a kadhai. Using the salt as a medium to roast helps to evenly roast the peanuts and prevents overheating, thus helping to retain its nutrition. Snack on them or add them to your poha, upma and sabjis. The roasted peanuts can be coarsely pounded and added to sabudana khichdi, thecha and wadas. Can also be ground with other ingredients to make a chutney.
