Ingredients for Kuli Kuli* 1 Cup dry roasted groundnuts / Peanuts* half tablespoonful Grated Ginger*A pinch of ground Chilli pepper(optional)*Groundnut /Peanut oil , for fryingKuli Kuli Making Directions *Grind or Pound the roasted groundnuts and ginger until smooth. You can make use of a dry mill or mortar. You can also add a little oil to the mill/blender as you grind.Don’t allow it to turn completely to paste. *Next, squeeze the groundnut paste to remove as much oil as possible(this step is very important if you want a very crunchy kuli kuli).The secret in getting the crunchiest kuli kuli is squeezing out as much oil out of the paste,as you can get out.
*Mold the paste into any shape of choice.I prefer the circular shape..(you can add a little water to help it mold easily).
* Now heat about 4 cm deep of peanut/groundnut oil in a frying pan or
pot, until the oil begins to smoke. ..you can add a few slices of onion
or cloves to the oil to give it some extra flavor.
*Add the molded groundnut paste to the oil and fry
until golden brown. Remove from the oil, leave to cool completely.
Tip: If your Kuli kuli turned out softer than expected, pop it into a preheated oven to dry out and harden without burning it.
