First up, let me clear a few things. I have no affiliation with any political party. Thought I am talking about Congress party? That is perhaps the last thing I’ll talk about!
In fact, I am going to indulge you in something way more interesting than that – the quintessential pass-time snack of Karnataka, more so the Bengaluru-Mysuru broad belt. Peanut, fondly called by the locals as “Time pass” Kadalekayi or Badavara Badami Kadalekayi (translates to Poor man’s almond, the peanut) is the star ingredient here.
