Serves Preparation Time Cooking Time
9 People 10-15 Minutes  30-35 Minutes



  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp gram flour/besan.
  • 1 tbsp rice flour
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala


Step 1

Soak the peanuts in water for 10 minutes. Drain and set aside

Step 2

In a separate bowl, add rest of the ingredients and mix. Add the soaked and drained peanuts to this prepared mixture.

Step 3

Stir the peanuts well, so that the masala gets covered on to the peanuts nicely. Arrange the peanuts on to a microwave safe plate in single layer. If the quantity is more than what will fit in a plate, you can do it in 2-3 batches.

Step 4

Microwave it on a high for 1 minute. Take it out and using a spoon remove any lumps. Microwave it again for a minute. Repeat it 3-4 times until they are crisp.

Step 5

Handle the plate with caution as it will get hotter by the minute. Do the same with all the peanuts.

Step 6

Let them cool down completely as they will get crisper as they cool. Store them in an airtight container.

Step 7

It is a great snack that kids can munch on. You can also enjoy them with a cup of tea or coffee.
