Masala Peanuts is a spicy and crunchy snack coated in chickpea flour, rice flour , peanuts and few spices which serves as wonderful tea time snacks.
Take a bowl, and add gram flour, rice flour, red chili powder ,turmeric powder, hing, chat masala and salt as per taste.Mix them well and keep aside.
Add the prepared gram flour-rice flour mixture and roll them in the flour with help of a spoon.
Add a teaspoon of oil and mix again.
Add 1-2 tsp oil on top of peanuts and place the bowl in microwave on high for 1 Minute.
Masala peanuts are ready and serve with hot chai.
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 on medium low heat so that they get cooked till inside and become crunchy.
3.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.
4.The same recipe can be used to make masala cashew or masala almonds.
