Then, strain the peanuts and set them aside.
Peel and dice the cucumber and carrot and chop the assorted fruits of your choice.
Combine the boiled peanuts, diced cucumber, carrots, and chopped fruits in a wide bowl.
Add rock salt, chilli flakes, honey, desiccated coconut, orange juice and lemon juice (if using) to the bowl.
