Prep Work:

Gather all the ingredients at one place. Finely chop the green chillies, fresh ginger, curry leaves.
Onto the chopping board take all these>> peanuts, vaamu/carom seeds, dhaniya/coriander seeds, jeera/cumin seeds, saunf/fennel seeds. Into a wide mixing bowl, add all the rest of the dry ingredients.
Using a rolling pin, gently coarsely crush all these>> peanuts, jeera/cumin seeds, dhaniya/coriander seeds, saunf/fennelseeds and carom seeds/vaamu.
Add the coarsely grind mix onto the mixing bowl. Pour a tablespoon of ghee/oil. Give a mix.
Add water (½ cup to ¾ cup) little by little. Using your hands, gently mix up everything, make thick dough as shown.

Stove Top Method Peanut Fritters / Pakoda:

Put a deep frying pan on stove top under medium flame. Add 3 cups of oil, let it heat to its highest boiling point. Gently drop in small tiny balls of the dough.
Gently keep turning now and then. Let them fry until they turn golden brown on all sides. Take them out onto a dish covered with kitchen paper towel. Repeat the same for the rest of the dough. Done.

Air Fryer Method Peanut Fritters / Pakoda:

Spray / Brush the air fryer mesh with a teaspoon of oil. Place the tiny small patties / balls of dough on the air fryer mesh. Spray them with a teaspoon of oil.
Close the air fryer lid, switch it ON. Set the time to 10 mins, temperature to 200°C/390°F. When timer is done, air fryer beeps. Open the lid, reverse them, spray them with more 1 teaspoon of oil. Air Fry them for 2 more mins.
When the Air-fryer timer is done it beeps. Then open the air fryer, take them peanut fritters onto serving dish. Done!

Tips:

  • Adjust the salt and spice as per your taste.
  • While crushing the peanuts, don’t make them into tiny pieces. You need to make each into 2 or 3 pieces only.
  • For stove top method: Always deep fry only in low to medium flame. 
  • For Air fryer method: Its optional to reverse the fritters after 10 mins, they turned out great even when I didn’t reverse fry them.
  • Storage: These fritters stay good for 10 days at room temperature, when stored in an air-tight container.
  • These are not suitable for refrigerating.

Result:

  • The taste of these fritters is crunchy and nutty in texture.
  • With right amount of spice and masala, the flavours of coarsely ground spices is the major plus point of the entire recipe.
  • As peanuts are rich in protein and fibre, thus add them to the health quotient too.
