This recipe is very simple to make. Enjoy the deep fried crunchy peanuts.
Peanuts 2 cups
Chick-pea flour 1/2 cup
Rice flour 2 tablespoons
Red Chilly powder 1 tablespoon
Salt to taste
Asafoetida 1/4 teaspoon
Oil for deep frying.
Place peanuts in a microwave proof flat dish and microwave on high power for 1 minute.
Toss them a bit and return to microwave on high for another 1/2 a minute.
In a bowl mix the flours, salt, asafoetida and chilli powder and keep aside.
Remove peanuts from microwave, cool and by rubbing between your palms skin them.
Put oil in a heavy pan and place it on fire.
Sprinkle few drops of water on the peanuts and mix with hand so the water coats the peanuts.They should be moist.
To these moist peanuts add the flour mix. Try not to use more water while adding the flours. They may lose the crunchy texture and turn out like medhu pakodas.
When the oil is hot, drop the peanuts in and deep fry until golden.
Drain on absorbent tissue.
Crunchy evening snack is ready.
I have followed Mr. Mallika Badrinath's recipe.
