- 4-5 cups Cooking Oil
- 1 kilo raw Peanuts, with or without skin
- 2 heads Garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
- 1 tbsp Salt or to taste
- 5 Siling Labuyo (chili peppers), optional
- Using a wok, heat and add cooking oil. Allow to heat over medium-low heat. Gently add peanuts and cook over medium-low heat for about 7-10 minutes while stirring constantly to avoid the peanuts from burning.
- Add garlic to the wok and let it cook for about 3-5 minutes while stirring constantly or until peanuts and garlic turns lightly brown. Turn off the heat. The residual heat will allow them to cook further.
- Drain excess oil using a sieve and transfer in a mixing bowl. Sprinkle the peanuts with salt while still warm and mix well. Add chopped chili peppers (or not) and mix well. Serve while warm or allow to cool before transferring in a closed container. Enjoy!
