Crisp and spicy Besan Masala Peanuts are very popular all over India. They are flavoured in different ways – in the North, they are made with a slightly tangy flavour, while in the South it is more of spice than tang, but irrespective of the seasoning, the snack itself is very famous and much-loved by Indians.
Here we show you how to make amazing Besan Masala Peanuts easily using the microwave oven. This way, it is made with very little oil and is therefore lower in fats. You can prepare a batch and store it in an airtight container, to munch on at any time of the day, perhaps with a cup of hot tea or coffee.
Once the peanuts are cooked, cool them completely. They will be soft when hot, and get the crispness only after cooling. The time taken to cook might vary depending on the power and size of your microwave oven, so keep checking on the peanuts during step 6. However, at step 5, do not open the oven. You must open and check only after the first 4 minutes of cooking.
