Fried masala Peanuts

I am a huge fan of peanuts right from my childhood. Even Thaara is like that, she loves peanut, in any form. For snack, I prepared this fried peanuts. Of course, she was standing by my side and watching. Then I made a paper cone and filled it with the peanuts and gave to her. She finished it all. She absolutely loved the way I served it to her in cone. Happily she posed for the pictures, I clicked for the post. Peanuts in paper cone is nostalgic.Those days they sell them in such paper cones in shops or the person who sells them in the streets. 
This is a great snack for both kids and adults to munch on. Now coming to the recipe..
