Stove Top Method Peanut Fritters / Pakoda:
Air Fryer Method Peanut Fritters / Pakoda:
- 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.
- 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.
