• The peanut (Arachis hypogaea), also known as
    the groundnut, goober , pindar or monkey nut, is
    a legume crop grown mainly for its edible seeds.

  • Peanuts are rich in protein, fat, and various
    healthy nutrients. Studies show that peanuts
    May even be useful for weight loss and
    are linked to a reduced risk of heart disease.

  • In the Indian subcontinent, peanuts are a light
    snack, usually roasted and salted (sometimeswith
    the addition of chilli powder), and often sold
    roasted in pods or boiled with salt.
