Kadle Upkari/ Peanut Sundal/ Seasoned Peanuts

Kadlo means peanuts. Kadle Upkari/Peanut Sundal is one breakfast items made in some amchi household and even served during festivals like navarati.

Raw Peanuts - 1 cup
Salt to taste
Coconut - 3 tbsp finely grated
Oil - 1 tblspn
Green chillies split -1
Red chillies -2 -3
Mustard Seeds / sasam - 1 tsp
Urad dal / split black gram dal- 1 tsp
Asafoetida / Hingu/ Hing - ¼  tsp
Curry leaves - 1 sprig


Wash and soak peanuts in 5-6 cups of water overnight. The next morning drain the water and add it in the pressure cooker. Add fresh water about 2 times the soaked peanut, to this add salt to taste. Pressure cook it for 4 whistle. Now switch off the flame and let steam release on its own. Open the pressure cooker and drain the water and set peanuts aside.

Heat oil in a kadai. Add in urad dal when turns golden add mustard seeds when they splutter add green chillies broken red chillies,curry leaves and saute for a few seconds.
Now add asafoetida and coconut and mix well.

To this seasoning add in cooked drained peanuts and mix well.

Add in salt and toss well add a few tbsp water and cook for atleast 5 minutes on low flame.
Check salt before serving.

Normally I soak the peanuts in the afternoon aound 1 and cook them at night and leave it without draining the water so that it gets easy to cook in the morning. If you are making for naivedya or fasting times then cook it fresh.
You can add ¼ tsp freshly crushed peppercorns if you wish to.
Happy Cooking,
