Groundnut, which also goes by several other names such as peanuts, earthnuts, monkey nuts, pinders, etc. is actually a legume that grows in the ground. It is a common sight during the rainy season to see little children hawking boiled groundnuts on the streets. A
lot of people may be reluctant to buy a cup or two from off the streets but that should change right after you know the benefits associated with these nuts.
