Happy Diwali 2014 with Spicy peanuts

Happy Diwali everyone! Hope you have a fun and safe and happy day! Enjoy the mithai and light those diyas and enjoy the crackers. And when done spend time chatting with your family and friends.

Growing up I remember mom making tins (huge tins) of diwali mithai and non mithai for weeks. Then the day of diwali huge boxes would be distributed to neighbors. I would wait for the evening for all my cousins to come for the grand fire cracker celebration. Though I was terrified of the noise, I just loved having everyone around, gossiping, chatting laughing and having a good time!

Now far away from home and cousins and noise, I try keeping traditions. I make mithai and non mithai, but it is by the handful. I share some of those with friends and spend evening eating good food and lighting diyas and sparklers! My kids know and look forward to Diwali every year now!

This year I made a few sweets and non sweets. Sweets : Besan Laddoo and Karanja and coconut burfi. Non-sweet I made nimki and spicy peanuts. Here is my recipe for the spicy peanuts or ground nuts!

Ingredients
1 cup peanuts/groundnuts
1/2 cup besan or chickpea flour
1 teaspoon chili powder (adjust to taste)
Salt and Black Salt to taste
1/2 a lemon
1/2 teaspoon jeera powder
Oil for frying

How To
Mix all the ingredients other than oil well. Then sprinkle water to coat the peanuts with the besan nicely. Leave aside for 5 min to marinate.
Heat oil and fry in batches.
Keep aside for puja or else enjoy fresh from the stove.
Sprinkle some black salt again if you want !

  1. Happy Diwali Somoo! It is a wonderful coincidence that I tried making these for Diwali this time!
    Did not make a post but did share the photos on facebook. :-)
    I had added a little rice flour for that extra crunch and amchur instead of lemon.
    I must add that jeera powder the next time.
    You have made so many things! Good to see you back ... do keep posting. :-)

  18. The most unique way to celebrate Friendship Day would be hold a gathering for your favorate images,quotes,hd wallpapers,messages,pics,photos and many more... Be that as it may, this thought needs a touch of arranging and exertion as you have to choose where to post(facebook,whatssapp,twitter,instagrame etc..) Once that is done, ring your pals and simply have your indulgence !
