Peanut Butter

   I'm sure, those who have already made this would agree with me that this is one of the easiest, quickest and tastiest dishes without any argument. This one is a favourite in our home. It gets over as soon as it appears on the dining table. It is always on the top of shopping list planned or unplanned. So I was looking for a recipe to make it at home. I went through many of them and finally made it in my way. Most of them are same barring a little change in sweetening agent and grinding. It came out so well and every one liked it and now is very much in demand. Here goes the recipe.


1. Ground nut -1 cup
2. Any vegetable oil - 1 tablespoon
3. Honey - 1 teaspoon 
4. Salt to taste (1/2 tea spoon approx) 


1. Roast the ground nut in a pan on medium heat till the outer layer is brown and black spots starts appearing. Let it cool to room temperature and rub the nuts with both your hands lightly to remove the skin.
2. Put the cleaned nuts in a mixer grinder and run the mixer using the push button for a few minutes till the nuts are coarsely ground.

3. Add oil, honey and salt and grind further till the required consistency (fine paste or with granules for crunchy texture). I made one with granules.

4. Store in an air tight container. No need to refrigerate for 15 to 20 days (it will vanish before that :)

After I made this at home, I never buy it from stores. This is so nutritious and healthier than the store bought version. You have made it perfect..

I have an aunt who always made this fresh for satay (from the Indonesian part of my family) and there is nothing like the homemade version
can understand why everyone would love this for sure

The store bought peanut butter is expensive and making it at home looks like a easy process.

Homemade is always the best, even i do my dose of peanut butter at home. Nutritious and delicious.

I agree it is better to make it at home. I have been trying to make it at home but before I start it, my husband gets the store bought one and I wait until the store bought one is done and the cycle continues :)

I usually buy store bought peanut butter and never tried homemade version. I'm sure it tastes way better than the store bought.
