Recepie – Bun Butter Congress

This is Namma Bengaluru stuff, mind it.

If you are a Bangalorean, you obviously know what Congress Peanuts are. The red spicy peanuts which you get at every bakery shop across the city. If you are not lucky enough to be a Bangalorean. Here is an easy way to make it.

Take split peanuts without skin ( not even the dark brown one ) and take some oil in a pan. Add Hing ( Asafoetida ) and Haldi ( turmeric ) powder and fry the nuts nicely. Add chilli powder and salt to taste. Be liberal in using the chili powder as it should be spicy and should look red in the end. Now your Congress Peanuts are ready. Store them in air tight container.

Now you have done all the hard work, it is easy to make what we wanted to start with. Take a bun and cut it into two halves. Apply butter liberally on both sides and fill it up with Congress Peanuts. Enjoy the yummy dish with hot filter coffee.
