What are Salted Peanuts?

Salted peanuts are a very easy and healthy snack recipe prepared using peanuts and salt as the name itself suggests. It is a healthy snack for both adults and kids. Peanuts contain high level of antioxidants, protein and monounsaturated fats which is good for your heart health, clean blood and keeps you fit. Usually we buy these salted peanuts from the market but after following this recipe, you can easily make it at home as I am sharing with you the step-by-step process on how to make salted peanuts along with photos. I am also attaching a printable recipe which you can use for your reference while preparing salted peanuts at home.

Variations 

I have prepared boiled salted peanuts, where I boil the peanuts before mixing with salt. If you love fried peanuts you can prepare fried salted peanuts where you deep fry the peanuts before adding salt. You can also prepare honey roasted peanuts or tandoori masala peanuts at home.

How to make Salted Peanuts?

Firstly boil 2 cups of water and add salt to it. Then add the peanuts, turn off the heat and let it soak for 10 minutes, this will help the peanuts to absorb the salt from inside. Now strain it and let it cool. Take salt in a separate container and heat it. Now add the boiled peanuts and mix it well. Roast it on high heat until they become crispy, it took me around 15 minutes to achieve that. Now sieve it and let it cool . you have your salted peanuts ready.

I have also prepared other recipes like

  1. Peanut masala. – Spicy and crunchy peanuts. Perfect for binge watching and cricket.
  2. Crispy corn. – Crunchy corn which is coated in flour then fried to make it crispy.

Serving

  1. It can be consumed as a snack whenever you get a craving for it.
  2. Can be served with tea.
  3. you can store it in an air tight container for a month but it won’t last long as you are going to finish it because of it’s so good in taste.

Important Points

  1. Do not add too much salt while boiling otherwise it can become very salty.
  2. While roasting, do not add less salt as it may not roast the peanuts properly.
  3. If you are frying the peanuts, make sure you don’t burn them or fry them on high heat.
