Peanut Powder

This simple powder comes in very handy on days when you don't feel like preparing elaborate dishes.Just a spoonful of this powder with plain rice and a dollop of ghee can be real comforting.This definitely deserves a place in the kitchen next to its cousin 'paruppu podi' ;)

You'll need :
Peanuts(skinless) - 1and 1/4 cups
Grated coconut - 1/4 cup
Whole red chilli - 6 - 8
Sesame seeds - 2 tsp
Oil - 1 tsp
Salt - as needed

Method :
-In a pan on medium heat, add the peanuts and dry roast them until they are slightly browned.Remove them from the pan.
-Add the sesame seeds and dry roast until they are slightly browned .Remove them from the pan.
-Add a tsp of oil to the pan in low heat,add the whole red chillies and saute them until they puff up and turn crisp.Remove them from the pan.
-To the same pan add the coconut and saute until they are browned.
-To a blender add the whole red chillies and coconut and grind until they are coarsely powdered.Add the sesame seeds to the blender and pulse until they are powdered.Finally add the salt and peanuts and pulse slowly until the peanuts are just coarsely poweder.Be careful to not over grind as the whole mixture could become a paste.
-Transfer the contents to an airtight bottle.Done !

Thanks for stopping by !
