I am fond of peanut in any form except peanut butter. I can get fresh peanut in my place just after taken it from the soil. I am very fond of peanut and jaggary candy. I have it almost everyday; I can't control it. I also like to add peanuts in any sweet dish I prepare. What about you?

i like fried peanuts very much, put some salt and pepper in it and i bet you would also really love the taste.I also like the jaggary candy which we call, patti in India. Also my mother makes one dish out of curd, in fact she was talking about it today, in which she mixes roasted peanuts run in a mixie and i really like the taste.We also eat it during the fasts.But i really hate eating it raw, without fried and also the sprouted ones too...

I am so excited to read your response. Peanuts with pepper and salt??? Do you mean fresh peanuts?? I have nevr heard about the peanut-curd dish. Will you please share the recipie with me? I think I will like that dish. Is that a kind of chutni we usually use for dosa or idli? I like masala roasted peanuts a lot.

I like peanut very much too. To me peanut is a very healthy nut. It’s also called long live nut. I like the fried and roast peanut. It was my daily nut. But in the UK there is no many choices and it’s also expensive. So I think I have long time no peanut. When I shopped in free market or farm shop I felt very jealous with the birds. Because there are peanut and sunflower seeds but just for birds. It’s not fair.

I am sorry my friend, please come to India. It is very cheap in India. I can get a 250 gram pack of peanuts for just 50 cents. Lots of peanut cultivation is happening in India and you can even get it fresh and differnt forms. You can buy peanuts with a mixuture of masala. We also use peanuts for various dishes. Thanks for the response.

I am also very fond of eating peanuts, it can promote the body's growth and development of peanut in high calcium content, calcium constitutes the main component of human bones, the more fresh peanuts, can promote the growth and development of the human body. There are many benefits, I will not list them all here, but the high heat of peanuts a day, should not eat.

It is nice to find another fan of peanuts through mylot. Do you mean to say that peanuts evoke a lot of heat in our body? I live in a place which is very hot. I think I need to take care of this heat aspect and eat a lot of fruits and curd to balance the heat. I can't give up having peanuts for that factor.

I like peanut in any form - whole, candy or even butter. The other day we bought a bottle of peanut butter and i liked the taste very much. Peanut is believed to be rich in protein. Its nutrients are more enhanced when these peanuts are boiled and eaten. My husband is crazy after these peanuts and gets them even today whenever he goes out.

Your husband is like me. I am too tempted to eat peanuts everyday, but I am controlling myself to a small extent. I feel peanuts add a lot to my weight. I am on diet. One of the person who responded to this discussion said that peanut produces a lot of heat in our body despite of its nurtitious content. Thanks for the response.

Yes i am fond of peanuts. It is jokingly called the poor man's almonds.Once you start eating it. its very diffcult to stop. Some people become very addicted to peanuts. There was once a soldier who had this habit of popping peanuts into his mouth. One day, as war broke out, his superior asked him to lead his army to the battlefield. On the way to the battleground, the soldier, while popping peanuts, accidently dropped a peanut to the ground. He is believed to have stopped his entire army and went searching for the missing peanut.This is the type of 'madness' peanuts creates..thx

Thanks for sharing story with me. I didn't know that people get addicted to peanut. Now a days I eat peanuts almost daily. I had one big packet of peanuts day before yesterday. I wanted to have some yesterday, but I controlled myself. I am too tempted to have peanuts every evening or night. I should come out of it. Thanks for the response.

peanut with hot dishes? Do you mean payasam and carrot halwa? I like it in halwa, but I mostly prefer cashews and rasins in payasam. I have seen people putting peanuts and almonds in payasam. I think some people also use peanuts in chutneys like coconut chutney. Do you do?

Peanuts are beneficial to our health like for example their ability to prevent diseases (cardiovascular, Gastrointestinal, Neurological/Developmental and Bone). But I'm avoiding peanuts that are cooked deep in cooking oil. Because processed oil gives you bad fat.

Thank you so much for talking about the advantages of having peanuts. I didn't know about all this; I just had peanuts because I like the taste. I only avoid peanut butter beacause it will add a lot to my weight. We should take care of the heat factor and make sure that we are doing exercises so that we won't put on a lot of weight.

Hi daliaj, I wonder why there are so many delicious foods around. I like ice cream, cheese or chocolate cakes, and there are still many various tasty foods available in the market. Peanut is one of those delicious foods as well. I like it very much. Once I have tasted one I couldn’t help and would keep on eating it until finishing the whole pack I like to take it after finishing my dinner. It’s really enjoyable to eat it and watch the tv program at the same time. I do plant peanut in the courtyard. I prefer to boil the harvest for it's the most easy way to take the fresh and tasty peanuts. I sometimes cook peanut soup together with chicken legs. Roasted peanut is really yummy as well. I like to spread peanut butter on my bread for breakfast as well. Though peanut is the healthy, nutritious as well as delicious food We are advised not to take much, for it contains considerable amount of fat. We would gain weight if taking it too many and often. Happy posting
