Masala Peanut / Peanut Pakoda

Peanuts are a valuable source of B vitamins, such as folate can help prevent birth defects. One small handful of peanuts contains 2 big grams of fiber i.e. 9% of the fiber which we need each day. Peanuts contain high quality plant protein. This is especially important for children, vegetarians and people eating more meatless meals. Click here to know all about PEANUT.



Ingredients:

Peanut 1 Cup
Gram Flour 1/4 Cup
Chili Powder 1 Teaspoon (as needed)
Asafoetida a pinch
Butter 1 Teaspoon
Salt as needed
Water little
Oil to fry

Method:
  • Take the peanut in a big bowl.
  • Sprinkle gram flour, asofoetida, chili powder, salt and butter and mix well.
  • Sprinkle water little by little and mix well ( note:- take care not to add excess water).
  • Heat oil in a kadai.
  • When the oil is hot, wet your hand in water and take peanut and spread it in kadai, so that the peanut will get separated.
  • When peanut turns brown in colour remove it and spread it in a tissue or news paper.
  • When it cools serve it and can store it in air tight container.
