Peanut pakodas

Peanuts/groundnuts are a favorite time pass for many of us. Peanut pakodas is a very popular and lip-smacking snack from South India. Masala peanuts are the delicacy of Tamilnadu. I often prepare it and serve it as snacks for tea. It’s an easy recipe and you will love it.
I invariably make them in large batches, but the challenge is not making them, it's trying not to eat them all at once! Try this with cashews or almonds too.

Ingredients:
Raw peanuts                       – 2 cup
Corn flour-                             1 cup
Rice flour                              – 1 cup
Red Chili powder                   – 1 tsp
Hing                                  – ¼ tsp
Salt                                  – to taste
Oil                                    for deep frying

 Method:
  • Mix the corn flour, rice flour , red chili powder, Asafetida(Hing), peanuts and salt. Sprinkle very little water and mix well. Keep aside for 30 minutes.
  • Heat the oil in a large wok or skillet over medium-high heat.
  •  A small bit of batter dropped into the hot oil bubbles and rises to the top immediately. Then add the batter-coated peanuts, piece by piece (or by the handful), adding as many as the wok can hold at one time.
  • Deep fry the peanuts in hot oil till they turn crispy and golden brown color.
  • Repeat with the remaining peanuts. Transfer to paper towels to drain the excess oil. Let cool and store in an airtight container and serve as a snack.
