Masala Peanuts


Peanuts 1 cup
Chickpea Flour 2 tbsp
Rice Flour 1 tbsp
Chilli Powder 1/2 tsp
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Pepper 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Little oil
Little water

Method of Preparation

1. Take the peanuts in a bowl. I used the salted peanuts.

 2. Add all the other ingredients (except water and oil) into the bowl.

3. Toss and coat the peanuts.

4. Sprinkle water just to make it all wet and dry ingredients to stick to the peanuts.

5. Spread in a microwave safe plate and cook for 2 min

6. Spray some oil on the top ( I just drizzled a little oil from the oil can). Turn and cook for another 2 minutes.

7. Again spray some oil and cook for 1 more minute. I was being very cautious and checked it every minute instead of 2 :-)

Second Combination

We like the taste of Besan in the peanuts a lot. So I upped the quantity of flour the second time.

Peanuts 1 cup
Chickpea Flour 4 tbsp
Rice Flour 2 tbsp
Chilli Powder 1 tsp
Turmeric 1/2 tsp
Hing a little
Baking soda 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves few
Salt to taste
Little oil
Little water

We like both combinations equally. The second one had more besan taste like the ones we buy in stores.
