  1. In a large bowl, toss together the cabbage, tomatoes, onion, chillies, salt, sugar and ground peanuts until evenly combined.
  2. In a small frying pan, heat the clarified butter over medium heat. Add the cumin and stir until toasted. Remove from heat, pour over the salad mixture and gently mix together. Chill until ready to serve. Garnish with coriander.


To grind peanuts, process them in a food processor until coarsely ground. Try not to over-process them, otherwise you will have peanut butter.
