Fried Peanut balls

We have this stall @ office which is exclusively dedicated to recipes made out of peanuts and only peanuts. They have peanut patty burgers, peanut sandwiches, club sandwiches, peanut balls, peanut pav bhaaji and the list goes on. I happened to try their peanut balls for my evening snack once and I was totally disappointed with the flavor. In fact there was no flavor at all. It was just boiled peanuts mashed and fried. So I tried it at home throwing in a few spices to suit our palate and now it has become a favorite side dish for pulaos. Its crunchy with that yummy nutty flavor.

~*What U Need*~
Dried peanuts - 1 cup
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Green chilli - 1
Fennel seeds - 1 tsp
Garam masala powder - 1/4 tsp
Salt - to taste
Corn flour - 1 tbsp

How I Made it:
Soak the peanuts overnight. Pressure cook next day for 3 whistles or till soft and cooked. Drain the water and pat dry.
Chop the green chilli finely. In a mixie, pulse the peanuts, chilli powder, fennel seeds, garam masala powder and salt twice or thrice till well-blended. Tip it into a bowl, add the green chillies and cornflour and mix well till it comes together. Pinch lemon-sized balls out of it. Deep fry till golden brown.

Serve as appetizer / side dish for pulaos.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
