Masala Peanuts

This is an easy and delicious instant snack – A perfect snack for loved one watching TV at home, spicy, crunchy and delicious.
This is my entry for Blog Hop Wednesday an event created by Radhika of Tickling Palates and this week I am paired with Jabeen of Jabeen’s Corner, who has a lovely blog full of interesting recipes.
Although this was Microwave recipe, I decided the old fashioned way would work better for us, simply because I think besan needs to be be cooked completely if you do not want it to upset your tummy. And deep frying ensures that :)
Here is my recipe
1 cup of roasted peanuts (without chilka or outer skin)
1tbsp besan
1tbsp rice flour
1tbsp sambar powder/curry powder
salt to taste
curry leaves
a pinch of asafetida
2 -4 tbsp water to make batter
Oil to fry

Masala peanuts

In a bowl mix the powders, salt, asafetida with the water to make it into a thick smooth paste
Now add the peanuts to this paste and mix in well
Heat oil and make in one or 2 small batches
Allow it to cool and break up any lumps

NOTE: in the hot oil, all some curry leaves and crisp them and add to the peanuts. Enjoy with a movie :)
