Spicy Boiled Peanuts

Whole raw peanuts are boiled on low flame for few hours along with spices. The spicy boiled peanuts are then strained and served.
Makes: 4 Cups of Spicy Boiled Peanuts


Green Peanuts / Dry Whole Peanuts 4 Cups
Whole Red Chiles 1 – 2
Salt 4 Tbsps

Method of preparation:

In a huge sauce pot, add whole peanuts, red chiles, salt and pour water to cover all the peanuts.
On high flame, bring the water to a bubble and then boil the peanuts on low flame for around 4 – 6 hours.
Make sure there is enough water in the pot all the time to avoid burning the peanuts.
Alternatively, you can pressure cook the peanuts for 4 – 5 whistles and leave it for around 4 hours before straining.
Strain the boiled peanuts and serve immediately.
Notes: Make sure to adjust spice with red chillies.

Suggestions: You can also add red pepper flakes in place of the whole red chiles. Also you can add bay leaf and few whole black peppercorns if desired.
