3 small pkts cheap peanuts
3 bunches corainder
fifteen mint leaves
1 tsp jeera poweder( cumin)
2 hot green chillies
salt and sugar to taste
Every other week we go to one of those good value supermarkets like Morrissons and Lidl. Last week bought some packs of the cheapest peanuts which turned out to be, well, inedible, shockingly so. GM probably. But one rule in this house is never to throw food away , certainly not brand new and still in shiny packets. So ethical cunnundrum. Th eanswer came in a green flash. Bought some bargain bunces of corianger from teh local Arab shop, and some green chillis, limes and mint. Whizzed in a processor with guilty peanuts, some powdered cumin, slat and a little sugar.
Put them into small plastic pots to freeze and used some on teh following:
1.As a crust for baked salmon and trout
2. Stirred into gaucamole – made fresh with avocado and tomatoes
3 Stirred into greek yogurt to make a wonderful dip
4 Added to an omlette with red onions and tomatoes
5. added to stir fried prawns
Must buy more of those cheeky peanuts again soon.
