The ingredients are few so it won’t take you much time to get them ready.
Peanuts: 300 grams
Mustard Oil: 4 tablespoons
Garlic (Lasun): 10 cloves
Onion: 1, medium sized

The quantities mentioned above are for two servings. Adjust the quantities proportionately to suit the number of servings that you require.
Peel, wash and coarsely chop the garlic cloves
Peel, wash and finely chop the onion.
Coarsely chop the curry leaves.
In a frying pan, heat one teaspoon of Mustard Oil on a low flame and sauté the garlic for a minute or so. Then add the curry leaves and continue frying till the leaves turn crisp.
Add the remaining Mustard Oil to the frying pan. Add the peanuts and fry till they turn golden brown in colour.
Next, add the onion and continue frying for a minute or so.
Finally, add the red chilli powder and salt and stir to mix well.
And you’re done! Drain any excess oil that is left in the frying pan and transfer the fried peanuts, garlic and onions mixture to a serving plate.
