Boiled peanuts are easy to make yourself. All you need is a few ingredients and time. In this recipe we show you how to make boiled peanuts with garlic and chili flakes yourself.

Step 1

Place the water and peanuts in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Cover the pan with a heavy lid and heat over high heat until the water boils.

Then reduce the heat to medium so that the peanuts simmer gently. After 30 minutes you can add the sea salt and crushed garlic. Cover the pot again and let the peanuts continue to simmer. During the cooking process, it is important to stir the peanuts regularly so that they cook evenly. If necessary you have to add a little water during the cooking process so that the cooking process is not interrupted.

The peanuts will take about 3 hours to soften. Check the consistency of your peanuts during cooking to make sure they are not too soft.

step 2

Once the peanuts have reached the desired consistency, you can remove them from the heat and strain them using a sieve.

Remove the crushed garlic cloves and place the cooked peanuts in a bowl. Add butter, chili flakes, finely diced garlic, and sea salt to taste.

Enjoy your meal!
