Avisha after completing one year started becoming a little under weight so the doctor asked me to add plenty of Fat to her diet.
One amongst them was Peanuts. So how do I give her Peanuts ? She once or twice did eat boiled Peanuts but it didn’t work because she was swallowing it and not chewing and eating.
Then she got introduced to Nutella, which she loved big time, but I didn’t want to give that to her on a regular basis because of it being readymade.
Recently I decided to try my hands on making peanut butter at home. And it really came out well.
A long due recipe pending, I got a lot of inquiries on how did I make it. So here goes the steps.
It’s a simple three step recipe with a little twist.
- 2 Cups Peanuts
- 1Tsp Groundnut Oil (Optional)
- 2 Tbsps Honey
- 1 Tbsp Organic Desi Sugar or Brown Sugar.
- Dry Fruits Powder (Optional)
🥜 Dry roast the Peanuts in an Iron Kadai, until the color and Smell changes.
🥜Let it cool down and then remove the skin.
🥜Blend the Peanuts until it turns to become a smooth paste.
🥜 You can add Groundnut Oil for the texture to Smoothen (I didn’t add though). Groundnut Oil also improves the Shelf Life.
🥜 Add either honey or Sugar or both as sweeteners. I added very little of both as I didn’t want it to be too sweet.
🥜 You can also add dry fruits powder to it just for extra nutrients.
🥜 After adding all of this blend it once again and empty it into a Glass Jar.
TIP : Peanut butter can be given with Dosa, Roti & Bread. Also 1-2 spoons can be given raw as well.
Avisha likes it raw than mixing it with something else.
Do try this recipe out and let me know how did it turn out to be.
