Yield: 4 servings
|1 pounds||Roasted peanuts|
|¼ cup||Peanut oil, or to taste|
|1 small||Onion, finely chopped|
|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.
