This recipe is from Roopa’s (@ Recipe of Choice) blog. I loved the combination of peanuts and sesame seeds and wanted to try it out. It turned out really well. Here’s the recipe:
Peanuts – 1 cup
Sesame seeds – ¼ cup
Garlic cloves – 2-3
Dry Red chilies – 1/3 cup
Hing – pinch
Dry coconut – ¼cup
Sugar – 2tsp
Tamarind paste – 2tsp
Salt – to taste
- Dry roast peanuts and sesame seeds separately and keep aside. I use peeled peanuts, so there is no need to peel them after roasting; but otherwise peanuts need to be peeled at this stage.
- Dry roast garlic and red chilies; let cool.
- Once all the ingredients are cool enough to handle, take them in a blender and grind them to a coarse powder.
This goes to JFI: Peanuts. Final Call to send all your entries to JFI: Peanuts.
I’m planning to do the round up sometime over the weekend, so send your entries to me before the end of day today, i.e. friday.
Oh I forgot to mention about my upcoming extremely short trip to India. My sister’s getting married and we are going to be visiting friends and family. One good thing about weddings is you get to meet everyone in one place, no need to go visit them at home. It’s going to be lot of fun and hectic too. I’m looking forward to it.
