Homemade Roasted Groundnut or Peanuts

Homemade Roasted Goundnut


Roasted groundnut is a common street food in Nigeria, but living outside Nigeria, it has been very difficult to find that tasty street food. Since I mastered the art of roasting the perfect tasty groundnuts I promised myself never to buy from the store again because it is either too salty or there is no salt at all. But when you roast it yourself you can control the amount of salt you want in your groundnuts and the result will be a tasty groundnuts like the one you buy from the street vendor in Nigeria. To achieve this I wash the groundnuts, add salt and stir properly let it marinate overnight. Try it and you will not be disappointed.


4 cups of raw groundnut or peanuts

2 1/2 tsp of salt


First Step

Wash the groundnuts, add the salt and stir properly. Let it stay overnight

Second Step

Heat the oven using the roast button for 400 degrees F

Third Step

Put the nuts in the oven and let it roast till you perceive the aroma of fresh groundnut

Check it and see if the color of most nuts are golden, there you know it’s done

Leave it to cool completely and enjoy.
