Peanuts Masala | Masala Kadalai In Microwave

    Peanuts Masala -a tasty ,healthy,easy South Indian snack.Masala kadalai is nothing but peanuts coated in besan/chickpea flour with some Indian spices then deep fried. High cholesterol peanuts don't need to be fried again(for me ) ? so i microwaved the peanuts until they are done.That's a perfect evening snack, ready in minutes.

    In south India,roadside shops to bakery sell these masala peanuts.Dad used to buy these,when we were kids.We loved it a lot.Lots of memories associated with these masala peanuts.Here in US ,i don't find these kind of masala peanuts.Even if i find ,that's not going to be microwaved?More over making anything at home gives me lot of pleasure and satisfaction.So i made it and  i am sharing with all of you.
