In a mixing bowl, whisk together besan, rice flour, red chile powder, garam masala, turmeric powder, soda bi carb and salt into thick batter with little water.
Pour the whisked besan batter on to the peanuts and mix well to coat the peanuts with the batter.

Heat oil in a deep pan on medium heat.
When oil gets hot, slowly drop the peanuts into oil.
