Mississippi Spicy Boiled Peanuts:
Boiled Groundnuts. Spicy Boiled groundnuts.
Oh...yeah, this is Mississippi boiled Peanuts! I never myself thought that they will use chili powders or paprika for boiling. This recipe was shared by a friend Liza.
I think its good the boil fresh peanuts than toasting them. See...when we boil along with pods-on, all the phytochemical and anti-oxidants from the shells gets infilterated in the nuts. Its good for health.
So Ak prepared this with atmost care...like he soaked the peanuts ahead, in water along with salt and chili powders. He used electric crock pot for boiling...as it took whole two hours, slow cooking! Most of the water and spices got penetrated. It was awesome! So one could make this way...or below is the regualr Indian thumb rule, choice is yours.
Garden fresh peanuts along with pods(2 bowls)
Salt 1 fistful(kosher salt)
Chili powder 1 fistful.
Boil the peanuts with excess of water. Add salt and chili powders to it. When the pods are done soft...remove from heat.
Run this over colander...throw the water away.
Serve steaming hot as a evenning snack. Best for rainy evenning.
