Spicy peanuts
Written by Jayashree
Published on April 3, 2014

I remember as kids we loved munching snacks ,more so during holidays with a bowl of fried crunchies watching our favourite serial. Fried peanuts coated with gramflour were one of the favourites. It’s holidays again and we fret. Well, time moves away in a jiffy and so shall these two months. Lets enjoy the vacations!

Here is a tasty snack loved by one and all.

The ingredients that you need are:

250 gms of groundnuts

125gms of gram flour

1tsp of rice flour

a pinch of asafoetida

a pinch of turmeric powder

2 tsp of chilli powder

salt to taste

oil for frying


Take a wide bowl and mix all the ingredients with very little water. The peanuts need to be coated with the batter, hence use water sparingly. Keep aside for ten minutes.

Take oil in a kadai and allow to heat. Slowly pour a little batter into the oil . Allow to cook on a slow flame until golden in colour. Remove and put them on tissue paper. When cool, store in air tight containers. Makes a good evening snack with tea.

We as parents, need to give our attention to our children and help them to fare well in exams. I came upon a wonderful book and thought I would share with you all. It is of speed study techniques and can be accessed on the link below:
