Quick, easy to follow video with step-by-step instructions of how to make Salted Roasted Peanuts:

Crunchy, Healthy & Delicious Snack

Peanuts are a very common ingredient and are added to many savoury dishes whether it’s chats, salads, soups, curries or stir-fries. They are nutritious as well and can be part of a healthy diet when consumed in sensible amounts.

Packed with healthy fats, peanuts are a good source of protein as well as other nutrients like folate, magnesium, copper, Vitamin E and phosphorous. As they are high in fibre, they are good for your digestive system as well. But peanuts are fairly high in calories too, so should be eaten in moderation if you are on a weight loss diet.

Quick, Easy and Convenient

Roasted Salted Peanuts are surprisingly easy to make at home and are ready in just a few steps. You just need to cook peanuts in boiling salted water till their skin starts to wrinkle. Then allow them to rest for 5 mins and later drain them on to a kitchen roll. Allow them to rest for a further 10 mins on kitchen roll so that any remaining water drains out. Finally roast them in hot salt till they turn golden brown and their skin peels off easily; it’s that simple!

There’s only one thing you need to remember and that is to allow them to rest on kitchen roll for 10 mins so that most of the water on peanuts drains off. This is a very IMPORTANT step, and if you skip it, peanuts might become soft and not as crunchy in the end!!

When you add peanuts to salt, salt will first stick to peanuts as they are wet, but as peanuts continue to heat up and roast, salt will slowly start to separate. Remember to wait till peanuts have cooled down completely before eating as they will continue to get crunchier as they cool down.

When peanuts have cooled and are ready to eat, they will look and taste just like the Khari Sing / Mungfali you get on streets of Mumbai.

Store these roasted salted peanuts in an air tight container after they have cooled down completely.

These deliciously crunchy homemade salted peanuts can be enjoyed as a convenient, standalone snack on its own or as a crunchy topping on various dishes like bhel, sev puri, dabeli, etc.

As peanuts are a good source of energy and nutrition, they are a great addition to balanced diet. And as they can so quickly and simply be made and stored, they are a good snack to have on hand when you’re on a go. These salted roasted peanuts have a unique texture and crunch, and they can make a tasty and satisfying snack, even if you are following a gluten-free or vegan diet.
