Peanut Masala(Peanut with spices)


1 cup peanuts
1 spring curry leaves
1/2 tsp black mustard seeds
1/2 tsp jeera (cumin seeds)
1/4 tsp hing (asafoetida)
1/4-1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/4 tsp haldi (turmeric powder)
1 medium red onion, chopped fine
1/2 tsp lemon juice
salt to taste

How it's made:

Soak peanuts for 3-4 hrs. Drain water & pressure cook - 2 whistles.
In oil, add mustard seeds & jeera. Once mustard splutters, add hing, chilli powder, haldi and curry leaves. Fry for a few seconds. Add cooked peanuts (donot add water), lemon juice and salt to taste. Cover and cook for a minute. Lastly add onions and cook for a minute. (Adding onions at the end gives a little crunch to the dish).

Serves : 4
