Peanut Butter

Peanut Butter .. This was the first thing I made in January 2019.

Started my new year on a healthy note..

Yes it can be made at home and doesn't take much of your time. And the good news is you can adjust the saltiness or sweetness as you like. I would add some spicyness too.. Or better even don't add anything..

I preferred to start preparing my peanut butter from the scratch. Taking raw peanuts, then roasting them, peeling them and finally grinding them. You see it guys just 3 steps - roasting, peeling and grinding. You do get roasted and peeled peanuts in the market and yes you can save some time cutting those steps but, I preferred doing it at home :) since I could :)
Also, I found roasting them in a microwave helps to roast evenly and brings out that nutty flavour of peanuts.

In this recipe I have kept it plain but you can add some spices too which I would surely try next time I make it. And the 2 spices which I feel would suit it best are cumin seeds and dried red chillies. I'am sure this will be a bomb.

Meanwhile here's the basic recipe.




Chunkier Peanut Butter

Chunky Peanut Butter

Smooth Peanut Butter


Ingredients Used?

1 cup Peanuts (raw)

How I made It?

Roast the peanuts, peel them and set aside.

Add the peanuts in a processor and process them till you get the required texture you desire .. Crunchy Peanut Butter OR Smooth Peanut Butter. 

All yours and in your hands.
Enjoy :)
