Masala Kappalandi (spicy Peanut Masala)

A very spicy snack, that can be made quickly and easily. If you have a packet of peanuts at home, then you can surprise your loved ones with this crispy snack. It can be served during tea time or as a starter for parties. My husband loves all spicy foods and this one occupies the top space among them.
