I did this before CNY celebration but had only gotten around to post this now. The plan was to roast peanuts together with the rest of the nuts and seeds. However skinless peanuts were out of stock at my local hypermarket so it was a last minute thing.
I really like mala flavour so wanted to do a batch of spicy peanuts that were not that strong tasting. I roasted peanuts and kept a small portion for fried peanuts.
