Healthy Spicy Peanut Snack in 2 Minutes( Microwave Recipe)

Crunchy peanuts coated with a spicy chickpea/besan mixture make a perfect snack for a relaxed evening cup of tea.Beware these are really addicting too :)These are great way of making a variation of peanuts as snacks and much easier and healthier than the fried ones.

Be very careful whilst cooking them as even a few extra seconds in the microwave will make the nuts hard and difficult to bite into.
