Let’s talk about the ingredients for Roasted Masala Peanuts recipe

Peanuts: I have used regular peanuts. I dry roasted them and removed the skin and then proceeded further. You can also use salted and de-skinned peanuts for this recipe.

Spices: The word “Masala Peanuts” gives an impression that lots of spices go into its making. However, a handful of basic spices have been used. Little sugar has also been used which complements the masala peanuts.

Oil: 1 tsp oil for 1 cup of peanuts, it is almost an oil-free recipe, except for the oil in the peanuts itself :).

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
