Nut Kings make the best of all legumes, from channa to peanuts, especially the cashews.

Go Shoppes of Arima, Ry's Bakery. They sell their own.
Right amount of seasoning and salt.

if yuh have fillings always be careful with them kinda hard objects
when you have a filling the outer edge of the tooth is the original tooth enamel and very fragile and can break outwards if the hard object catches it on the edge when biting down.

If it breaks off you will be lucky if the broken part is above the gum line,
just need to bore out old filling and redo with build up for the outer section

if it breaks down below the gum line you could be in plenty extra unpredictable work.

Ditto on patsy's. Singh's have a similar label and tastes good too.

Nuts king hard like brick.

Spees lack the homestyle flavour. If somebody can introduce them to chadon beni, garlic and pepper it's gonna be a 6 over tht pavilion roof

Them fry nuts/channa is de worse, i see concrete softer than that. I stick to baking nuts as it much easier to eat, tastier and softer too. Anyone ever try baking channa the same method as nuts (soak, salt, etc.) ?

You ever try nuts in the microwave?
put the red skin nuts in a baking dish spread out - sprinkle with a lil water with your fingers - then microwave for about 3mins covered lightly with a paper towel
Super quick and tastes really good

i thought everybody did that. There's no radiation residue either, it's microwaves. Same with quick microwave popcorn in a damp brown paper bag.

But its inferior in taste to the slow pot/oven due to the Maillard reaction.

Deep frying is a very precise science wrt to temperature and time. They're both very crucial to the quality of the end product. Volume of oil necessary to achieve a real deep fry without absorbing too much oil is also important. That is why most people get it just wrong without the precision and standards used by industrial cookers.

In the oven, yes it's the exact same way with the channa.
Soak overnight. Drain and wash. Blot dry on some Bounty. Make sure it's dry or else it won't crisp. Season with some oil and whatever else seasonings but you don't want it wet. Leave the salt out for now and mix in a bowl. Then on a flat metal tray 350°F for 40 mins. No layering, every grain flat. After 40 mins, take it out, sprinkle your salt now and mix the channa well. This is where the crisp is, the salt at this moment sucks out the outer layer of moisture from the bean. Big grain salt is best for this reason. Turn, and another 20 mins in the oven. Should be very crispy by that time. Up to your preference.

If you are sensitive to the phytohaemagglutinin in beans (you would know what i talking about if you were), best if you pressure cook the channa for 10 minutes after the soaking. And then continue with the Bounty and make sure it is as dry as possible.

u wouldnt believe it have plenty ppl who dont know about that , i been doing that over 20yrs at least once a mth , its 1 of my fav snacks

i agree baked or patching in a pot wud give a better taste but mw is d fastest most economical way to cook nuts

i do about half pound at a time & then do d rest next few days

never tried it with water though, i do mines jesso without any salt, at 1st for about 2 mins nonestop then turn them around & 1 minute intervals standing there keeping my eyes on it cause it will burn fast b4 u know it ...
