Spicy peanuts


I like to make my own spicy peanut which goes well with popcorn and soda or beer, the perfect snack combination for stay home movie night.   O(_)O~



1 pack dry roasted peanut (1 pound)
1 to 2 tablespoon peanut oil
2tablespoon Sichuan peppercorns, crushed
a handful dry red chili pepper
1 teaspoon sugar
salt to taste



Rinse well the dry red chili peppers, pat dry and cut them into small pieces with scissors.

In a large wok, add oil,  Sichuan peppercorns and chili pepper and; cook over medium  low heat.   After they are well toasted, add peanut, sugar and salt. 

Cook over low heat all the time, which doesn’t burn the peanut.   Stir frequently, until the peanut becomes shinny and golden brown and evenly coated with seasoning.   

Because I use dry roasted peanut which doesn’t require long cooking time. Raw peanut should be roasted first before added to the wok.   

Peanuts will become crunchy and crispy after they cool down. 

A perfect snack for movie night!
