Salted Pan Roasted Peanuts/Uppu Nella Kadalai

You cant forget few nostalgic moments and the foods we enjoyed during those moments, one among is this Salted peanuts. Love this pan roasted peanuts since ever i tasted first time when my grandma bought me in a store near to Pondicherry's raja theatre, this shop doesnt exist now, the oldman who hails from a nearby village never failled to sell the freshly roasted peanuts everyday along with puffed rice, rice flakes, salted channas etc. Everytime we go to Nehru street, we never forget to get a huge pocket of this roasted peanuts, the highlight of this peanuts is they are roasted along with sand which gives a wonderful flavor, i cant forget those tasty roasted salted peanuts.

I'll try to replicate the same at home whenever i feel like having these peanuts, mine goes for an easy preparation. A simple salted water sprinkled over the raw peanuts is quite enough to make this peanuts. Slow roasting helps this peanuts  to get prefectly cooked and you can enjoy these roasted peanuts with a piece of jaggery. This is how i love to munch mine.This salted peanuts are one of my childhood favourite hence am posting today for this month's Friendship 5 Series, an event by Geetha and Savitha as the theme of this month is Childhood memories series.
