MASALA PEANUTS RECIPE

  Masala peanuts or masala kadalai we call in tamil is a basically a deep fried snack and i still remember during our childhood days whenever my dad buys masala peanuts from office me , my sister and my grandma used to finish this on the same day itself. Yes my grandma is also a big fan of these masala peanuts. Though my mom and grandma makes all the sweets and snacks at home and i still remember we never buy any store bought snacks but somehow these masala peanuts we always buy from a particular shop from my home town. Suddenly i got a craving for these masala peanuts and my friend who makes this often guided me with few tips and the recipe for masala peanut is here:

(The peanuts which we get will be slightly bigger. I used the raw peanuts without skin and you can use the raw peanuts with skin too.)

  • I didn’t add garlic.
  • Add few drops of water and ghee to make it into a tight mixture.
  • Never add excess water and make the mixture loose.

  • Ghee is added to give more crispiness and to retain that too.
  • Heat oil in a pan for deep frying.
  • Sprinkle this peanut mix in oil.
  • do not add too much in a batch.

  • When the sizzle sound of the oil lessens take out the peanuts from the flame and drain them in the kitchen towel.

  • This peanuts will be done very fast and be careful while frying this as this will get burnt easily.
  • Store this in a air tight container and enjoy with tea.
  • I love to have with curd rice too.

Note:

  • If using skinned peanuts just continue with the same procedure or if you don’t want the skin just roast them in a pan for few minutes and rub it.
  • Alternatively you can microwave it for a few minutes and take the skin out.
  • The entire recipe cane be done  without deep frying. You canbake it in an oven or microwave it too.
  • I added crushed garlic in the last batch and i loved the flavor in that.
