Recipe Notes

1.Do not add more water while mixing flour and peanuts,add little by little.
2.if you do not want to microwave you can use prepared mixture and deep fry in the oil
2.microwave power settings are different for different brands, hence if the masala peanuts are not cooked or crunchier after 3 min microwaving…you can microwave for more 60-90 secs.
