Masala Peanuts

Today is the last day of this marathon. I am really happy that i made it. I had a lot of fun baking.

I have made the Masala Peanuts in oven and thoroughly enjoyed it. You could add the spice powders according to taste and preference


Groundnut / Peanuts - 1 cup
Kadalai Maavu / Gram Flour / Besan - 4 table spoons
Rice Floor - 2 table spoons
Red Chili Powder - 1 tea spoon
Garam Masala Powder - 1/2 tea spoon
Asafetida - 1/8 tea spoon
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tea spoon
Salt - 1/2 tea spoon
Oil - 2 table spoons


Soak the peanuts in water for 5 - 10 minutes
In another bowl, mix all the dry ingredients and set aside
Drain the water from the peanuts completely and sprinkle the dry ingredients
Toss it to coat evenly.

Grease a microwave safe plate with a tea spoon of oil
Spread the peanuts in a single layer on the plate and drizzle the oil
Microwave on high till it becomes crispy in 2 minute intervals.
Every 2 minutes take the plate from the oven, mix the peanuts and keep it back
It takes about 6 - 8 minutes
Allow it to cool and store it in an air tight container and enjoy!!
