Wash and clean the peanut as they may have some mud/ dirt on the whole pods.
Add salt to the pods and toss them around
Add necessary water to the pressure cooker and bring it to a gentle bubble
Add the peanuts to the pot.
On medium heat allow the steamer to cook the peanuts for about half an hour
Drain and serve the peanut hot with a bowl on the side for the pods.
Keep ready the quick toss-up salad as described in the post if you like it a bit more dressed up.
You can do the recipe in the instant pot as well, follow the same procedure, but bring it up for steam for 40 and allow natural pressure release.If you desire a softer peanut increase the timing to 5-6 whistles, in the Indian pressure cooker or up to 70 minutes in instant pot.
