Peanut murukku recipe, turns out very crispy and light. Easy to prepare with just few main ingredients. Full video, step by step pictures recipe.
I tried this peanut murukku few months back couple of times for a cooking demo at our Pasir ris CC. I followed the same way I made cashew murukku, only that I roasted the peanuts. It turned out really crispy and everyone loved it. I want to try once without roasting too. Should do after few months as Diwali is nearing and I am making lot of other fried items too, feeling saturated already.
