  • 1 cup Peanuts Raw
  • 0.50 cup Besan Flour
  • 2 tbsp Rice Flour
  • 1.25 tsp Salt (to taste)
  • 1 tsp Red Chili Powder
  • 2 - 3 tbsp Water
  • 1 cup Oil (for frying)
  1. Soak peanuts in water for a minute (this step helps to wet the peanuts and coat with the besan flour mixture).

  2. In a separate bowl, add besan flour, rice flour, red chili powder, salt and mix well.

  3. Combine both peanuts and flour mixture together, add water little by little and mix well until the peanuts get coated evenly.

  4. In a hot oil, drop the peanuts little by little and deep fry over a medium flame until the outer coating turns crispy. The peanut may not be crispier right after the frying, once cooled down it turns crispy.
