MeasureIngredient
1 pounds Roasted peanuts
¼ cup Peanut oil, or to taste
1 small Onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon Cayenne
1 teaspoon Salt
  Oil for frying

Grind or pound the nuts adding just enough oil to make a smooth paste. With wet hands, squeeze the mixture to remove any excess oil.

Saute the onions, cayenne & salt in a tablespoon of oil until golden.

Knead into the nut paste. Shape into 1" diameter balls adding a few drops of water if necessary to make them hold together. Drop the balls into hot oil or flatten & fry in a skillet. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes until the outsides are crisp.
