Peanuts are a somewhat common snack typically served dry or coated in some kind of spice blend. I decided to give that indulging feeling of eating peanuts a new spin by making it Indo-Chinese style! It’ll pair perfectly with drinks or as an appetizer by itself!

Instructions
  1. Boil Peanuts: To boil your peanuts:

    Instant Pot: Add in your dried peanuts with 1 cup water and 1 tsp salt in the Instant Pot. Pressure cook on high for 5 minutes with quick release.

    Stove-Top: Add the peanuts with 1 cup water and 1 tsp salt in a pressure cooker. Let it cook for two whistles, one on high flame and one on low.

    After boiled, drain the water from the peanuts and set aside.

  2. Make Marinade: In a bowl, mix together schezwan sauce, ketchup, hot sauce, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, corn starch, garlic, chilies, and ginger. Then, add in your boiled peanuts, onions, peppers, corn, and cabbage. Make sure to save roughly 1 tbsp of all the veggies to mix in while cooking for extra crunch. Mix until well combined.

  3. Stir-Fry: In a pan, heat oil with dried red chilies. Add in your peanut-veggie mixture and let sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add in salt, red chili powder, cilantro and the veggies saved earlier, and give it a mix. Be careful when adding in salt since many of the sauces we added also are quite salty. Let it cook for another 1-2 minutes before taking it off the heat.

  4. Garnish: Garnish with cilantro, namkeen, edible flowers, and green onions. Enjoy!
