Masala Pallilu. Spiced roasted peanuts

This is another oil free snack with rich nutrients. This is a famous street food in India, especially at the beaches and parks. I have roasted the peanuts in oven, to get the nice brown colour evenly. Best way to skin the peanuts is, allow them to cool completely. Place them in a flat plate or even spread them on a news paper. Now gently roll the rolling pin over them for couple of times and then rub them with hands. You can also rub them using any flat bottomed objects like a plastic cup or a steel tumbler. Slowly blow the skin away. I know this is the another hassle. Best way to do this is to place a news paper in the kithen sink and gently blow the skin. once the job is done, wrap it up and chuck it in the bin.

Roasted skinned peanuts – ½ cup
Finely chopped onion – ¼ cup
Aamchur powder – ¼ tsp
Corriander powder – ¼ tsp
Chilli powder – ½ tsp
Lemon juice – 1 tsp
Fresh coriander chopped - 1 tsp
Mix all the ingredients and serve immediately .
