How To Make Homemade Coated Peanut

Share the Love

I’m yet to see anyone I came across who doesn’t love coated peanut.

While I was growing up, the type we enjoyed and was used to was burger peanut snack.

Burger peanut was soft and crunchy such that children could as well enjoy.

There are some peanut these days that is as hard as stone, and I’ve come to realize that it’s a function of the ingredient used.

This homemade coated peanut recipe I’ m about to share is just as tasty, soft and crunchy as the burger coated peanut snack.

Coated peanut is a Nigerian snack loved and enjoyed by so many. It’s made with groundnut and the rest of ingredient on the list below.

It’s a Nigerian deep-fried snack similar to the Nigerian buns, chin chin, puff puff, doughnut, and the rest of them.
