Roasted Peanuts


You can find people roasting peanuts just about everywhere in Delhi.  The aroma is smokey, and the flavor is out of this world.  It is one of the few street foods we have let ourselves enjoy as we acclimate to Delhi belly.  When visiting Jaipur with Evan’s parents and brother we found even more flavored varieties, one spicey (middle), and one coated in a sweet, fried coating (left).  I however always still prefer the classic  smokey roasted.


The best part for me though is watching the vendors artfully weigh and toss the peanuts before serving them in delicately folded newspaper holders.
