  1. Wow! I used to love peanuts prepared this way!! Thanks for the recipe and for visiting my blog!

  2. Hi Jay, well.. thats an appetizing recipe.. loved it.. tried yesterday.. but the peanuts were not crispy.. Please tell me how to make it crispy.. and the main question is what type of peanuts should I use..the roasted ones or the raw ones..!! Please reply.. :)

  3. Hy Usha. Thanks for trying this delicious recipe. We have to use roasted peanuts. Since the peanuts are crispy in roasted form, they will turn extra crunchy, while we coat them with spice masala and deep fry.
    Do try n lemme know.
    have a nice day.
