Makkadabee ( Spicy dry Groundnuts)

Normally Diwali food items take long time to prepare, this is very instant, tasty and favorite of kids n elders.
My grandma was a fantabulous cook. She had spent all her life in kitchen. But as age caught up my dad made it a point that she won't enter kitchen. She was disappointed, kitchen was her territory. One Diwali, I suggested her..." lets prepare something which is easy, fast yet very tasty." That's when we cooked this together. Our crunchy Makkadbees was in great demand. I will never forget her smiling face. Today I made it in her memory and I'm sure all will love it.
