Microwave Masala Peanut | Snacks on the go

Hi friends, 
Sharing a very simple and yummy snack which can be enjoyed with a cup of tea or can be munched on while on the go or just like that! I made this for the first time. Satisfied with the taste. Coating the peanuts completely with the flour was bit challenging. Any suggestions for accomplishing that are most welcome :)

Cooking time - 15 mins; MW power - 900W
Raw Peanuts (shelled) - 1 1/2 cups
Besan/Kadalai Maavu/Chick Pea Flour - 2 tbsp heaped
Rice Flour - 1 tbsp - heaped
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Cumin powder - a big pinch
Salt - 1/2 tsp or to taste
Water - as required
Oil - 4 tbsp

In a wide bottomed glass (or any microwave-proof) bowl heat the oil in Microwave oven for 4 mins. Meanwhile, mix the peanuts, besan, rice flour, chilli powder, cumin powder and salt. Sprinkle water a teaspoon at a time and mix. Repeat until the mixture is coated all over the peanuts and resembles a crumble. Add the mixture to the hot oil and mix until the oil is coated all over. Microwave for 6 minutes stirring once in between. Allow 3 minutes of standing time (Leave in the microwave for 3 minutes undisturbed after it is done). Perfect snack with a cup of tea.
