ShareThis is really a simple, quick,healthy and tasty treat that makes a great tv time/ movie time snack.
I have been making this in the microwave and find that it tastes just as good and is just as crunchy as the deep fried ones without the guilt associated with frying and minus the calories of course.

  • Raw Peanuts – 1 cup
  • Besan – 2tbsp
  • Rice flour – 2 tsp
  • Red chilli powder – 1 tsp
  • Asafoetida-a pinch
  • Crushed garlic-3cloves
  • Salt
  • Oil – 4-5 tsp
Wet the groundnuts completely, by smearing water on them, very lightly.
Mix all dry ingredients well.
Sprinkle over the moist groundnuts & mix well for them to get a uniform coating.
Add oil and mix well.
Carefully transfer the coated groundnuts to a flat  microwave safe container.
Seperate the peanuts from one another and spread evenly.
Microwave on Hi for 4 mts(time may vary in different microwaves).Break peanuts apart if stuck together.
Mix peanuts with a spoon every 2 minutes for even roasting.
Allow to stand for 5 mts.
Remove onto absorbent tissues for the oil to be absorbed completely.
Enjoy the crunchy & tasty gultfree peanuts!

    Well, it always seems to be very interesting when talking about recipe particularly about groundnuts. I like the taste very much. in spite of its calories, nut is one of my fave snacks. It tastes so delicious. I eat it often while watching my fave TV show. By the way, I tried this recipe last Wednesday but i could not make it well. I'll give it another try.

    Wow, it is a fresh idea to cook that kind of snack. I have tested and its crunchy taste will never be forgotten. While having a chance, I often make it for my kids and my husband also. If you have a new recipe, would you mind to share? Thank you.
