Take a bowl, and add gram flour, rice flour, red chili powder, turmeric powder, hing, chat masala, and salt as per taste. Mix them well and keep aside.
In another bowl take peanuts. Now add oil, lime juice and mix it well.
Add the prepared flour mixture and coat the peanuts just by mixing with the spoon.
Add a teaspoon of water and mix gently so that the peanuts are evenly coated.
Peanuts are ready for air-frying or baking.
Preheat the air-fryer at 350F for 5-minutes.
Spray with oil and air-fry at 350F for 4-6 minutes until peanuts start to change color.
If your peanuts are in clumps, gently break them at this point. Now flip and cook for another 4-minutes till the masala peanuts look crispy and well cooked.
Depending on the size of your batch and your air fryer's setting, one batch should take between 10-12 minutes to cook.
Allow the peanuts to cool down completely and then sprinkle some chaat masala on them.
As the peanuts cool down, they become crispy and flavorful.
Masala peanuts are ready.
Enjoy them as a snack or the way you love.
