Peanuts which are also called as groundnuts, earth nuts or goobers, are very good when consumed in moderation as 80% of this nut is fat. Peanuts are rich in protein, fat and other healthy nutrients. It belongs to the legume family and not the nut family, making it closer to lentils and soy. Salted and spice coated peanuts are very commonly consumed as an accompaniment to drinks. Peanuts are also commonly consumed as peanut butter. If you want to make your own peanut butter recipe, you can see it here.
I enjoy a nice masala coated peanuts as available in India with a cup of tea but then always eat it with guilt. My daughter can’t enjoy this snack simply because it’s too spicy. However, with my simple recipe of roasting peanuts in the pan and then coating them with spices of your choice makes it guilt free and highly versatile.
My daughter loved to munch on these and also asked to pack it as part of our travel food when we go to Ooty for a much needed break as a family.
