- 500g peanuts
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 60ml water
Peanuts are an integral part of our Zimbabwean food culture. We eat them on their own as snacks or as part of another snack which we commonly know as mutakura (corn and nuts). Peanut butter, which obviously comes from peanuts is also used in a number of meals including peanut butter rice, in vegetables and in meat. This recipe is for salted roast peanuts…. let’s get to it.
Resources/Equipment You Will Need
- Heavy base frying pan
- Wooden spoon
- Have your peanuts (500g) ready. At this stage you will also need to dissolve the salt (1/2 tsp) into the water (60ml) and have this ready to be used.
- Put peanuts in pan.
- Roast peanuts until they start having a ‘charred’ but cooked effect on them. Use your wooden spoon to turn them around continuously to avoid burning the peanuts.
- Pour the salty water into the pan.
- Stir continuously until the water is dried up in the pan and your peanuts are dry.
