Masala Peanuts

To my DELIGHT i saw this delicious looking Masala Peanuts in Cooking 4 all Seasons by Srivalli. I was so glad or is it HAPPY :-) to see them. Thankyou Sirvalli.

I love masala peanuts but i had to wait till i am in India for holiday to eat them as i didn't know how to make them.

And the way srivalli made it looked so simple , i coudn't wait to try them myself.
I was not disappointed at all. They are so easy to make and delicious too.......

While loading the picture to the computer i was eating them and now while i am writting this post i am crunching them on.

My daughter would love this also so i had to tell myself keep for her too so she can have them when she is back from school in few hours. Otherwise i would have ate them all. I know i know i am a greedy pow......
I am not writting the recipe down. If you want to make them just go to Cooking 4 all Seasons


This i am sending to An Easy Cooking blog, for the "power" less cooking event hosted by Easycrafts

The Ingridients

Mixing the peanuts

Frying them



This is my first bunch of peanuts i fried, they were a bit too brown. Srivalli had written fry them in a slow heat, but i think i was GREEDY

I learned my lesson from the first batch, so this batch i fried in a slow heat.

I mixed both the batches so you can see they are in two colours.

F, have you seen my Masala peanuts at Aroma. Don't need to fry either, it's microwaved and will be ready within 10 mins. Looks great though, this is how we made them in India, deep frying. Enjoy!:))
