Salted peanuts are awesome as a snack. In India, the peanuts are roasted in sand and sold as street snack. It will be warm rolled in news paper and taste absolutely delicious. My sister's friend gave her an awesome recipe to create the same effect and I am elated that I could enjoy salted peanuts here. Super easy, took me two and a half minutes to make it and I had to wait for one long minute to cool down to taste one peanut. Here is the recipe for all those who love to have salted peanuts like me. Perfect to parcel them off for picnics, games, for an afternoon snack, for a movie night, with drinks and over a great conversations.
Microwave safe plate
Raw Peanuts with skin - 1 cup
Water - enough to wash the peanuts
Salt - a few pinches
It all depends on the power of your microwave. Mine was done in 2 minutes and 30 seconds. If not sure go in 1 minute increments.
1. Wash a cup of peanuts in water. Drain out the water. Add a few pinches of salt and microwave for one minute, give it a mix and microwave it for another minute.After that please microwave in 1 minute increments.
2. Important, do not go past 3 minutes, it will get over toasted. Because,sometimes when they are very hot they will not taste roasted, but after it cools down it will be perfect.
