The best place on earth to enjoy the monsoons is Kerala at the tip of the Indian peninsula. And there’s is no better snack during those rainy days than peanuts roasted with curry leaves and coconut oil. And I make it in the microwave making it an extremely healthy option as I use just 1 teaspoon of oil for a cup of peanuts.
Raw peanuts with skin 1 cup
Fresh curry leaves, a few sprigs
Coconut oil 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Red chilli powder 1/2 tsp
Wash the curry leaves and dry it with a kitchen towel. Transfer to a microwave safe dish.
Add the peanuts to the dish.
Add the oil and mix well.
Microwave for 2 minutes. Stir. Microwave for another 2 minutes. Stir. Microwave for 1 minute.
Add the red chilli powder and salt. Mix well. Use your fingers to crush the curry leaves, which will be crisp by now.
Cool and store in an airtight container.
