Here is my recipe
1 cup of roasted peanuts (without chilka or outer skin)
1tbsp rice flour
1tbsp sambar powder/curry powder
salt to taste
a pinch of asafetida
2 -4 tbsp water to make batter
Oil to fry
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
