Masala peanuts recipe | Spicy peanuts snacks recipe – simple, easy to make and delicious snacks recipe that can be prepared within minutes. We call this masal kadalai (masala kadalai) which is little garlic flavored and spicier than that we get in packets and the north Indian version.
The peanuts should be raw and with skin. Do not use roasted peanuts. fry the peanuts in medium flame. the batter has to be sticky and thick so that it coats well on the peanuts. if it is runny, then the fries wont be crisp. adding curry leaves at the last is optional but gives a exclusive flavor to the snack.
I also prefer to sprinkle some chaat masala on top of the final fried peanuts before storing. cool it down completely before storing else it would turn soggy. Only when the peanuts inside is also completely cool, the entire piece would be crispy. We would taste it immediately and find the crust crisp but peanuts uncooked. But when completely cool, it will be perfect just like the cookies.
