Ingredients You'll Need
150 g Peanuts roasted – 1 cup
20 g Sesame seeds roasted – 2 tablespoon
2 tbsp Sesame Seed oil
2 tbsp Rice Vinegar
1 tbsp Sriracha
1 tbsp Red chili flakes
-If you are using raw peanuts then first dry roast the peanuts in a skillet on stovetop on medium heat. While roasting shake and toss the peanuts few times and do not leave the stove, as they can burn very easily. Transfer to a bowl when peanuts are lightly brown and smell toasty. (Skip this step if you are using pre-roasted peanuts.) Alternatively, you can toast the peanuts in the oven or air fryer.
-After roasting peanuts using same skillet roast the sesame seeds, since the quantity is small it would be better to toast on stovetop rather in oven or air fryer. Dry roast sesame seeds over medium heat with frequent tossing for even browning. Toast seeds for 3-4 minutes or lightly golden brown. Transfer the seeds to a bowl.
-Now transfer the roasted peanuts and sesame seeds to a food processor bowl fitted with blade attachment. Pulse few times so that nuts get crushed.
