Kapalandi Masala refer to fried peanuts coated with Kadalamavu (Chickpea flour) then fried in Coconut oil or simply fried peanuts in Coconut oil and curry leaves flavored with  Masala powder and salt. 

When bought in mobile peanut and pea shop, they can be bought with chopped fresh onion topping.

It was always a joy for me to sit down in Allepey Beach in Allepey, Kerala, India with packs of Kapalandi Masala with fresh onion toppings. Nice way to spend a quiet weekend. 

Picture below is a picture of Kadalamavu coated Kapalandi Masala. 

Below is a scene around Allepey, Kerala, India - peanut  and peas vendor selling assorted peas and peanut flavors  in the church during the Holy week and Easter celebration.
