 How to Make Special Homemade Peanut

Coated peanuts are a beloved Nigerian snack many enjoy, crafted from groundnuts and the remaining ingredients listed below.

Here's a rephrased version of the recipe:

Homemade Coated Peanuts Ingredients

- 2 cups of raw peanuts

- 3 tablespoons of sugar

- Salt, to your taste

- 2 tablespoons of powdered milk flavoring

- 1 cap of liquid vanilla extract

- ½ teaspoon of grated nutmeg

- 2 cups of flour

- 2 medium-sized eggs

- Sufficient vegetable oil for frying


1. Begin by examining the peanuts for any spoilage or damage. Place them in a bowl and cover with hot water. Add salt to your liking and allow them to soak for 20-30 minutes.

2. After soaking, drain the peanuts in a sieve. Transfer them onto a large tray, spreading them out evenly, and leave them to sun-dry.

3. In another bowl, combine the sifted flour with powdered milk flavouring and grated nutmeg. Set this mixture aside.

4. In a separate clean plate, crack the eggs and mix them with sugar, salt, and liquid vanilla extract.

5. Once the peanuts are sun-dried, place them in a dry bowl. Coat them with the egg mixture, ensuring each peanut is adequately covered. Then, add the flour mixture to the peanuts and egg mixture, thoroughly coating the peanuts with flour.

6. Repeat the coating process approximately four times until all the flour and egg mixture are used up, ensuring the peanuts are well-coated.

7. Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan. Once hot, carefully add the coated peanuts.

8. Continuously stir the peanuts while frying to prevent them from burning. They are ready when they turn golden brown.

9. Once fried, transfer the coated peanuts onto a paper towel to absorb excess oil. Allow them to cool completely before storing them in an airtight container.
