  1. I had peanut salad in India. I was staying at a former Maharaja palace that was operated by the Jains. Of course the food was vegetarian. I absolutely loved this salad and want to make it but raw peanuts are not available in Germany. Is there any way I can use roasted unsalted peanuts?

    1. Roopal, you can do all the preparations before and add the dry ingredients but others I will add may be 2 hour before not more then that, freshness of the tomatoes and cucumbers will not be there.
