Congress ~ Spicy Peanuts

As promised, here is the recipe for Congress Kadalebeeja or Spicy Peanuts.

Roasted and Deskinned Peanuts -  1 cup (approx200g) (read as - as much as you wish)
Red Chilli Powder- 2 tbsp
Pepper Powder- 1tsp
Byadagi Chilli Powder - 1tsp (or you can use kashmiri chilli powder)
Food Color (red) - a pinch (I have not used, but to make it look like commercially available stuff you can use it)
Salt - as required
Rice Flour - 1 tbsp
Oil - 3-4 tbsp
Asafoetida (hing) - a pinch
Curry Leaves - as much as you want

Method :
1. Heat oil. Add asafoetida. When asafoetida becomes aromatic add curry leaves and fry till crisp.
2. Switch off the stove and add rest of the ingredients in the following order - pepper, redchilli powder, food color, salt, rice flour and mix well.
3. Add deskinned peanuts and mix well with the rest of the ingredients.
4. Enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea or with bakery style bread.

Till next time, ENJOYY!
