Peanuts - Dau Phong Rang|
Roasted Peanuts - Dau Phong Rang
1/4 c Raw peanuts
Use shelled and skinned unsalted peanuts for this purpose. Cook a small
amount at a time and use shortly after they are roasted to preserve their
flavor. Amounts are specified in recipes using roasted peanuts.
Place the peanuts in a skillet over moderate heat and cook, stirring
constantly, until the nuts turn golden brown, about 5 minutes. Allow to
cool. Pound in a mortar with a pestle or pro- cess in a spice grinder until
the peanuts are a bit chunky.
Store-bought dry-roasted unsalted peanuts may be substituted in recipes
calling for roasted peanuts.
