Tips & Storage:
- Adjust the salt & spice as per your taste.
- Keep stirring continuously while roasting the ingredients, so that they do not turn burn.
- If you blend for more than 1 min or so, it would turn into paste as the peanuts would release oils.
- Storage: Transfer the powder in an air tight container, and store it in a dry place (not fridge). This way, the powder stays and tastes best for 1 month.
- Later on the powder doesn’t spoil but the spice level reduces very much.
- In this, Peanut Karam Podi, the aroma of the roasted peanuts is all that you can smell at first. But when you taste the podi, the spice of red chillies and flavour from curry leaves are also quite evident.
- For its nutty taste and flavour, the peanut powder is generally liked by kids and adults as well.
