Masala Peanuts

Masala Peanuts

Masala Peanuts are a crunchy & crispy bites which can be enjoyed as a evening  snack along with your tea or coffee. To make them healthier I microwaved this goodies and they were as perfect as a deep fried one's. I shared both the versions for you all to explore & can choose the option you like.
