I was in for a surprise after marriage, as I came to know that its hubby dear’s favorite too. Athamma said she always has a batch ready for his request. Maybe its in the genes or whatever, my kids also love these peanuts. And when hubby dear wanted something to munch, this is what came to mind. Making it, I was recollecting all those days back when this was made at home. Hubby really enjoyed this snack and I made sure I get this recorded too.
Fresh Ground nuts/ Peanuts – 1 cup
Besan / Gram flour – 1/2 cup
Rice Flour – 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Fresh Garlic – 4 -5 cloves
Turmeric powder a pinch
Water enough to make a stiff dough
Jeera powder a pinch (opt)
Method to prepare:
Wash the peanuts and let it drain.
In a bowl, take the peanuts, besan, and all the spices. Mix well. By now you will have a thick batter coating the peanuts. If needed add some water. else you can fry it as such.
Heat oil in a kadai, when its piping hot, drop the peanuts into the oil. Turn when its cooked on one side.
Drain them to kitchen towel and store it in a air tight container.
Sending this to Alka for her Just for you event, since I made it specially for my hubby.
Since I feel this is an healthy snack on a moderation, sending a bowl to Rachna too for her Healthy bite event. Hope she feels this is healthy too.
And finally to Susan for her MLLA – 8th helping, since this uses both besan and peanuts! Hope the ladies like this!
