To fully enjoy tea time, there are tons more delectable foods that may be made. We have a surprise that is sure to impress you if you are tired of eating the same old fried snacks and are constantly looking for something interesting and delectable. Here is a list of protein-packed peanut snacks that would go great with your evening cup of coffee. And the greatest part is that all of these snacks are incredibly tasty and simple to make. 

We assume that everyone has tried the masala peanut pack from a supermarket. Ever attempt to make it at home? If not, we have a simple recipe for you to make masala peanuts at home. Nothing else matters in this dish; it's all about indulgence. 

Recipe: 250g peanuts, 60g cornflour, 30g refined flour, 30g besan or chickpea flour, 30g Kashmiri chilli powder, 15g coriander powder, 2.5g turmeric powder, 5g garam masala, 5g ajwain or carom seeds, 5g amchur powder, 5g black salt, 25g green chilli- ginger garlic paste, Salt to taste, Crushed black pepper to taste and water.  

Method:  

Add all three types of flour to a large mixing bowl. Add black salt, ajwain, amchur powder, garam masala, turmeric, coriander, and Kashmiri chilli powder to the mixing bowl. Mix these components together. Green chilies should be added to the ginger-garlic mixture. For a thick batter, add ½ cup of water. This will serve as the peanuts' coating. Fold the peanuts into the batter after adding them. Scoop out some of the masala peanut batter, and then cook it in small clusters in medium-hot mustard oil. 

Add a lot of chaat masala to the fried peanut clusters. You could also choose to divide them up into smaller pieces.
