Do you like the recipe of fried peanut as snacks?

See results

I have already cooked the boiled peanut at home though haven’t posted it here. It was fun to open the shell and eat the peanuts. It came up to my mind that I never tried to deep fry them at home as we always buy deep-fried in the store way back in the Philippines. A deep fried peanut was considered unusual snacks for me just like popcorn it’s great when you watched movies or chatting with friends. Men’s love it when it has beer. I personally loved this every time I crave for something salty and crunchy or take a break on what I do. It’s best to eat when it’s hot. This can be stored also for two weeks in the jar so you can eat this whenever you like plus very easy to make. Here’s how.


6 Cups Raw Peanuts with skins

1/2 Cup of Oil

1 Teaspoon fine salt

5 pcs Raw Garlic

Cayenne pepper for spicy hot flavor (optional)


Preheat the oil in the pan for at least 5 minutes.

Add Garlic, when it’s a bit brown.

Add the Raw Peanut and cook it for 5-10-minute mix occasionally until golden brown.

Remove nuts with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

Sprinkle salt, cayenne pepper or any spicy you like while nuts are still hot.

And now ready to serve!
