Baking Masala peanuts

Masala Peanuts

  • Take the Besan,rice flour,chilli powder,saunf,salt,Asafoetida in a bowl and mix well.
  • In a wide bowl take the peanuts and sprinkle water (2-3 tblsp) slowly so that all the peanuts become wet.
  • Now add the dry flour mix to the peanuts and mix well with your hands.If you feel its very dry you can sprinkle little water.Finally add 2 tsp oil and mix well.
  • Spread this on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake in a preheated oven at 200 ° C for 10-12 mins.
  • Once done take the tray out and cool it on the counter.Crunchy peanuts are ready to enjoy with your Tea/Coffee !
  • Don't add any water to the flour mix.Add water only to the peanuts so that the dry flour mix can easily coat the peanuts.
  • I have given the approximate time only.Once you start hearing crackling sound of the peanuts be alert and check for its doneness.
