Baked Masala Peanuts

Masala peanuts is a perfect tea time snack which will be enjoyed by all in the family. Baked masala peanuts are one of our favorite snacks and so I will make sure to refill this by preparing a big batch before it gets finished. This is a guilt-free version of the fried masala peanuts and can be enjoyed an extra handful.

The masala peanuts are coated with a thick batter of gram flour and seasoned with spices, which is then baked to perfection and enjoyed by all. Make sure to stir in between or else they will burn and will not taste good. The baked ones are crispy, crunchy and tasty just like the fried ones. By adding garlic, the flavor is well incorporated. This is so easy to make that you just have to throw all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and bake in the oven till done. This is a perfect guilt-free snack which can be enjoyed any time of the day. Hope you all may like this.

  1. Peanuts- 2 Cups
  2. Besan/ Chickpea Flour- ½  Cup
  3. Rice Flour- 3 tbsp
  4. Red Chilli Powder- 2 Tsp
  5. Salt- as required
  6. Ajwain- 1 tbsp
  7. Garlic- 3 cloves

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking tray using parchment paper.
  2. Wash and drain the peanuts. Keep this aside. Crush the garlic just once.
  3. Add all the other ingredients in the drained peanuts and mix well till everything gets well incorporated.
  4. Spread this evenly onto the lined baking tray, make sure that there are no lumps and breaking the lumps with fingers.
  5. Bake for about 15 minutes, stirring in between. Switch off the oven and allow it to cool by keeping it outside the oven.
  6. The peanuts will turn even more crispy and crunchy. Store it in an airtight jar and enjoy.
