Recently I tasted boiled peanut chaat as a starter in a lunch buffet. We loved it very much. So I tried at home when my neighbor gave me a bag full of raw groundnuts from her own farm. As the groundnuts were fresh, I pressure cooked it and made this chaat. You can also use roasted peanuts instead. It gives an additional crunchy taste. Raksha loved it very much. I am sure your kids will love it too. You can make it for their snacks box, after school evening snacks or for birthday party too.  Its a quick and simple recipe. All you have to do is just chop the vegetables, mix boiled or roasted peanuts and serve ! Lets see how to make this easy, yummy peanut chaat recipe with step by step pictures and video.
