Love it or loathe it, the fact is that IPL-Indian Premier league season 5, cricket’s most glamorous Twenty20 tournament has returned in full swing !! T-20 fever is not only spread all over India but has spread to every corner of the earth...and certainly in my family too !
Being cricket fanatics we love to watch IPL matches with the whole family..however I do not like to support any particular team, as I do not live in India, also, there isn't any team from Gujarat state so I am supporting every team and just want to enjoy good entertaining matches...
and while watching and enjoying these matches, the family expect some shandaar (delightful) snacks to munch! So I prepared this chana masala and kasoori methi peanuts..if you think Chris Gayle can hit sixes and watch the ball vanish every time, make these super and mighty spicy masala peanuts and watch them vanished too in no time !!!! I can guarantee you they are as highly addictive as IPL!
You will need:-
- 1 cup raw peanuts
- 2 tsp chana masala ( choley masala)
- 1/2 tsp black pepper powder or red chilli powder
- 2 tsp oil
- salt to taste
- 1 tsp kasoori methi ( dry fenugreek leaves)
- In a non stick or heavy bottom pan heat 1 tsp oil, add peanuts, salt and chana masala. Mix well and roast them on a low heat for at least 5-6 minutes. Now add red chilli powder or black pepper powder, kasoori methi and add one more tsp oil and roast them another 3-4 minutes. Stir every few seconds so peanuts don't get burnt. Turn off the heat and let it cool completely. Store in air tight container.
