PEANUT PAKORAS / KADALI PAKODA

OMG ! Every single time.. I end up writing in the last minute.. and has always been this way, last minute studying, last minute running to bus, last minute cooking, last minute everything..pfftt.. and the best or the worst part, I am sure that I will always stay this way :) 




I have been a little busy lately and have not been reading all your blogs.. I am so sorry and I promise to read every single post I missed.. These days, all I post is for "Blog Hop Wednesday".. Thanks to Radhika or I would have vanished without notice.. :) I am really surprised that, I am hopping for the fourth week successfully.. :)) To see , who is hopping with me... click here.




For this week, I am paired with Santosh Bangar... She is such an inspiring person owning a equally inspiring blog.. She has a nice collection of recipes.. She has also been featured in other websites and recently was interviewed by Tanya Munshi.. Do enjoy her wonderful interview by clicking here . and Dont forget to visit her space.. You would absolutely love it..


Santosh had a huge collection of recipes but Me with little time in hands.. I had to pick something very quick to fix and yet snacky for my evening tea.. :) Guess what I found.. Peanut Pakodas.. I use to make this all the time before but for some lazy reason never posted it in my blog.. :) Well then, this would be a perfect time to snack on them.. or do we seriously need a special time to snack..? won't u agree..?? :)



I had store bought, Dry Roasted Peanuts in my Pantry.. Good for me.. :)) Now, this recipe is such a simple one and only takes less than 10 mins to actually make them.. And the best part no oil is used , cooks in microwave in minutes.. Now, The moral of this post "Always stock Peanuts at home" :)

Ingredients


Roasted Peanuts - 2 cup
Besan - 4 tbsp
Rice Flour - 2 tbsp
Chilli Powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
Salt - as required
Water
Cooking Spray



Preparation
  • Throw all the ingredients in a mixing bowl 
  • Mix call all the dry ingredients then use little water[drops of water] to make the dry ingredients stick to the peanuts.. 
  • Spread this in single layer in a microwave safe dish and let it cook for a 2 mins [do not cover the microwave dish]
  • Then, use cooking spray on the top side.. turn and cook the other side for 2 mins..
  • Use the spray again and turn and cook for 1 minute.. 
  • At this point , It will be crispy and cooked.. now just break or separate the peanuts from each other.. and microwave it for a minute or so.. 
  • Serve it with Chai :)
Tips & Tricks

1] Allow the peanuts to get crispy.. It might take a minute more or less depending on your microwave.
2] Use oil instead of water if desired.. it will be just like deep fried.. :)
