About Peanut Powder :
The Maharashtrian recipes use more peanuts(also called groundnut or singdana/ shengdana). Peanuts are roasted well, cooled and ground to coarse powder.
This powder can keep for a month or more. This peanut powder is used in many salads, curries and vegetable preparations.
It is used instead of fresh coconut or along with it. It adds a distinct flavor to the dish.
