Shengdana or sheng is the indian names for peanut, whereas usal is a maharashtrian term for spiced dish made of beans and/or sprouts. This Shengdana Usal is not to be confused with the Shengdanyachi Amti I posted earlier. Unlike in peanut curry(shengdanyachi amti), here the peanuts are used as whole instead of making a paste. This Peanut Sabzi is a authentic Maharashtrian Recipe, not known to many outside the Maharashtrian community. This  shengdana usal is loaded with protein, dietary fiber and Magnesium it gets from the peanuts in it. Not only is this Peanut Sabzi delicious, but also very easy to make. This shengdana usal minimal ingredients but gives a burst of flavors with every bite. The nutty texture of peanut blends with the spices and coconut, to give a magical outburst of flavors. Get ready to experience the essence of Maharashtra with shengdana usal.
