Take it out and stir it using a fork nd seperate the lumps..Again microwave it for 1 min*... Repeat the process*to* till done.. It took me abt 9 to 10 mins..'standing time' should be taken into consideration..timings may vary depending upon different microwave used..enjoy spicy crunchy snack!!
i make this MW masala peanuts every other weekend just to have oil free snacks with hot tea in evenings and also to get rid of deep fat frying..
