INGREDIENTS

  • ¼ teaspoon white lime stone paste + 2 tablespoons water – mix together
  • 1 litre boiling water
  • 500 grams blanched and peeled peanuts
  • 4 garlic cloves + 2 teaspoons salt – grind these together to a fine paste
  • 6 garlic cloves very thinly sliced
  • 500 ml peanut oil for deep frying

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Mix in the white lime stone paste to the boiling water, add the peanuts and soak for 30 minutes. Drain.
  • After the peanuts have drained, add the garlic and salt paste mixing well and let it stand for about 10 minutes.
  • Heat the oil and fry the peanuts over a medium heat, for about 10 – 15 minutes, or until it just starts turning a light golden colour.
  • Add the garlic slices and continue to fry until the peanuts are lightly golden in colour.
  • Remove the peanuts and garlic from the oil, drain on absorbent paper.
  • When cool, store in an airtight container.

Notes

When the peanuts turn a light golden brown, remove from the oil immediately. The peanuts will continue to get darker as they cool down. So, its important not to get them too brown in the hot oil, if you do they could look burnt and taste bitter when cooled.
