  1. In a large wide glass dish or any other microwave safe dish, mix together all the dry ingredients.
  2. Add the olive oil to this and mix well.
  3. Add water and mix well.
  4. Place the dish in the microwave and heat for 2 mins initially.
  5. Remove, break lumps and stir the peanuts and place back in microwave and repeat this process in 1 minute increments until done.
  6. The time in the microwave will depend on the wattage of the microwave, it took me approximately about 7 minutes.
  7. When the peanuts turn darker, into a deep rosy/red color it means it is done, it may still seem soft when you taste it while hot,but when you cool this it gets crunchy.

1/4 cup - rice flour
1/4 cup - chick pea flour (besan)
