  5. Bake at 200℃ for 15-20 mins, with mixing them once in a while to get evenly baked peanuts. Serve these guiltfree oilless Masala peanuts.

My Notes:

Kabuli channa can be used instead of peanuts.

Evenly placing the peanuts on the entire surface of baking tray gives good result.

Mixing the peanuts while baking also ensures even baking.

    This is my favorite snack, I always eat store-bought masala peanut only, now I like to try this. Thanks for sharing this recipe. By the way I just want to know whether we should use raw peanut or roasted peanut.
