How to make peanuts (Complete recipe)

Peanut burger

Peanut Burger snacks were the type we frequently ate and adored growing up. Because the peanut burger was so soft and crunchy, kids could also enjoy it. Today we will discuss how to make peanut.

These days, the ingredients determine whether a peanut is soft or as hard as a stone.

Peanuts are also a good source of protein and healthy fat and are covered in flour which is high in carbs.

Another exciting thing about this snack is that it can be preserved for more than six months if stored properly. The handmade version of the burger-coated peanut snack is just as good, soft, and crispy.

Contrary to popular belief in the West, a peanut burger is not a hamburger prepared from ground peanuts. Instead, it is a well-liked West African snack that children and adults enjoy. This quick, low-cost, and delectable snack is made by coating peanuts (also known as groundnuts) and then frying them. The peanut burger is best stored in an airtight container, preferably a jar.

Ingredients Needed to make peanut

2 cups of raw groundnut

3 tablespoon sugar

Salt to taste 

2 cups of flour 

Two Eggs

2 tablespoon powdered milk flavour

1 cap of liquid vanilla flavour

1/2 teaspoon of grated nutmeg 

Vegetable oil for frying.

6. Repeat the coating process four times until you exhaust your flour and egg mixture and the groundnut or peanut is well coated. 

By the time you have repeated this process three times, you would have already seen it coating 

7. Put your pan on fire and heat the vegetable oil 

8. Stir very well to avoid your peanut from getting burnt; stir until it turns golden brown.

 9 Transfer the fried peanut to preferably a paper towel to drain excess oil. You can leave the oil to cool completely before using it again. 

10. Store your peanut in a Jar or an airtight container.

How Best Can peanut Be Enjoyed 

You can enjoy this sweet snack alone without needing to add anything; get a drink and crunch away. If you want to go extra, you drizzle small chocolate on it and still enjoy it, or you can top these two combos with some coconut shavings.

How To Be Sure Your Peanut ends up Crunchy

Always check to see if the peanuts are well fried (golden brown); if the peanuts don’t turn golden brown, continue to fry until the brown colour comes out. 

Cool your peanut on a paper towel and allow it to cool completely for about 5 minutes; the peanuts become crunchy while it cools.
