    Notes

    After the initial air frying the peanuts in preheated Air Fryer, you can add all the seasoning in a mixing bowl. Transfer the warm peanuts(after air frying of 3 mins) to the bowl, coat the spices nicely and then the peanuts back to air fryer basket and air fry for another 8-10 mins.
    Consume the Peanuts within 2-3 weeks as the peanuts may turn rancid when stored for long time especially when in hot weather.
    Cooking/Air Frying time may differ when using peeled or broken peanuts. Do not use roasted and salted peanuts in the recipe.
