Another popular Filipino pulutan**! Fried garlic peanuts, i love them hot and spicy served w/ chilled soda or beer...hhhmmm..i love the smell as it's frying too!

I'm lucky i can buy the peeled nuts and the perfect size i want, here in my neck of the woods.

pulutan=means foods that goes well w/ beer or hard drinks.


Peeled/Shelled raw peanuts
4 cloves of garlic (thinly sliced)
pepper flakes

1. Heat up oil in a pan or wok.

2. Fry the sliced garlic. Stir for few minutes until garlic gets brown but not burn. Take them out and set it aside.

3. Pour in the peeled raw peanuts and stir constantly for 15 minutes or until peanuts are cooked. Peanuts may be soft when its cooking. It'll be crunchy when it cools down.

4. Strain peanuts, then add the fried garlic, salt and pepper flakes depending how much salt and how hot you want your peanuts.



  1. I would really like to try this recipe but I don't think I can purchase 4 "gloves" of garlic in my neck of the woods. LOL!!!!
