Simple Deep Fried Peanuts Recipe.

Some of the best tasting food in life is always deep-fried, like these deep-fried peanuts that my helper just made. I love peanuts plus deep-fried food (who doesn’t?), so this is a fabulous combination for me. In Singapore, peanuts are usually cooked with ikan bilis (or anchovies) and served in a Nasi Lemak dish with sambal chilli. I prefer just to eat the peanuts alone.

Deep Fried Peanuts Recipe

A bag of raw peanuts
Salt to taste
Vegetable oil

1. Deep fry peanuts in oil till golden brown. Dish it out and place it on kitchen towels.
2. Sprinkle salt, mix and serve during dinner or eat it as a snack. 
(or store in an air-tight container for consumption later)

Yes, it is that simple. I love eating it with rice and other Chinese dishes during dinner. It really adds the crunch factor.

    I love these. My dad’s business when I grew up in Georgia was a buying point for peanuts – basically a middle person between the grower and candy company.

    During Christmas, he’d make these gift baskets for customers and included fried peanuts that they had grown. He would get 100 lb. bag of raw shelled peanuts and fry away. They were so good.

    Sherxr: Haha guess what? My mum came back with a bottle of sambal ikan bilis. Delicious! I cannot live without my chilli man, I love sambal.

    Frank: Hi there. This is so cool, giving away fried peanuts during Christmas and the fact that it is so close to your heart. 🙂

    I just picked up a bag of “Uncle Buds” Garlic Deep Fried peanuts in Chattanooga, TN. They’re amazing, because they’re still in the shell. The shell becomes delicate and easily edible this way. Now it’s high in fiber, and the healthy factor counters the fried-unhealthy factor. I reccomend trying them – there is no website for this company, but he’s got an email address on there at Good stuff.

  11. Mo K. Says:

    Uncle Bud’s has a website!
    I agree, their peanuts are amazing. I first tried them at a Gander Mountain store, and ordered a case directly from Uncle Bud.
    You do have to print an order form and mail it in (they don’t have online ordering yet), but they ship promptly.

  15. Ning Says:

    Must the raw peanuts be soaked in water (hot or cold?) first? I tried frying but the peanuts ended up burnt and hard…. did not soak? not enough oil?

    • amsiewong Says:

      At room temperature is fine. 🙂 Make sure the oil is at the right temperature too, before adding the peanuts. You can try adding a couple first in the oil, to test it out before adding the whole batch.

      All the best!

    i really love peanut.

  19. cindydundon Says:

    I can fry them up pretty good…..I salt them as soon as I get them on the dishtowel….BUT the salt doesn’t stick it ends up in the bottom of the bag, I store them in.
    Would kosher salt stick better?
    Any suggestions?


    • amsiewong Says:

      Hi Cindy, normal table salt should do the trick. Before you eat them, best to give the bottle a good shake so the salt is distributed evenly again. 🙂 You can also ensure that the oil is soaked out well using your dishtowel, before salting it.

      Hope this works.

    • Beverly Says:

      At what temperature did you fry your peanuts on. Ours just burns
      and tastes awful. And how long do you fry them?Do you soak them in water first?

      • amsiewong Says:

        Hi Beverly 🙂 We fry it when the oil just about start to bubble, throw in one peanut to try it out first, before throwing in a batch. Ensure the oil isn’t too hot, not sure about the temperature as I didn’t measure it.

        Nope, pls do not soak them in water or they’ll not be able to fry properly. 🙂

        Hope this helps!

Your idea is excellent; the problem is something that not enough people are talking intelligently about. I am very blissful that I stumbled across this in my seek for something referring to this.

    about fried peanuts: I have been frying nuts for more than 60 years, I still do. I just fried a batch a short while ago.
    My mom, a confectioner, taught us all.
    I soak 1 lb of (shelled and skinned) peanuts, for about 24 hours. in a sauce-pan. in salted water. Water to cover the nuts plus about 1/2 inch, to allow for nuts swelling as it absorbs the salt and water.
    Your first attempt should be to add a table spoon of salt to the water per pound of peanuts. You may on your second ‘adventure’ adjust salt to your taste.
    Just before frying, all the water is drained from the nuts, as much as possible. (no need to put nuts on drying paper).
    For frying, use a neutral tasting oil, (I use Canola oil), which is heated to just under 300 deg.
    I put one nut into hot the oil as a test. This nut will give off a lot of bubbles and should become brown within a few minutes.
    Remove the cooked nut from the oil.
    Now, with a strainer spoon, carefully add all the soaked nuts to the oil.
    Be careful about over spilling as there will be very, very much more bubbling from a pound of ‘soaked’ nuts as they begin to fry.
    As the nuts cook, they should be continually move them about in the oil, so as to let all the nuts cook evenly. This should take about 8 to 10 minutes.
    Have a flat tray very near, which should be slightly higher on one side, to allow excess oil to drain from the cooked nuts.
    When they are light golden tan, reduce the heat and get ready to remove nuts from cooking oil on to the tray and spread the out in a single layer. If two or three, the nuts should be moved about to allow even cooling of each nut.
    Please note that, the nuts, when Golden Tan may become Brown then Coco-Brown within 30 to 60 SECONDS. Hence the reason for spreading them in the tray, since they continue to cook for some minutes after being removed from the boiling oil. Let them cool for at least 30 minutes.
    I promise you that these nuts will be much enjoyed.

    Please let me know. Freddy at( )
