    Roasted Peanuts and Sesame seeds
  • If you want to remove the skin of the peanuts, dry roast them separately.
  • To remove the skin, let it cool completely. Grab a handful of peanuts in between your hands and give a rub, the skin will come off.
  • Alternatively one can rub the peanuts in a clean muslin cloth. The skin will be removed. Discard the skin. (I have used the skin as well)
  • Once the peanuts and sesame seeds are cooled down add them to a mixer grinder jar.
  • Add in the yogurt/curd, cumin seeds, green chilli and salt.
