Notes

- Red food color can be added to get a bright colored Masala Kappalandi/ Kadala. - Separate each batter coated peanuts with hands before putting into hot oil to avoid the lumps of Masala Kadala. Also spread the batter coated peanuts with a spatula while frying. - Rice flour is optional but adding it gives crispness. - The consistency of the batter should not be very loose or thick. Medium consistency is needed for the batter to stick on the peanuts well.
