Preperation Time:

Cooking Time:
10 mins


Whole Peanuts (with skin) – 2 cups
Powdered Jaggery – 2 tbsp
Cooking oil – 2 tbsp
Salt – 1/4 tsp


1.Take peanuts in a pan, roast until browned and the skin starts to easily peel off.Cool down and then remove the skin.You can take the peanuts in your palm,rub it then blow away the skin.

2.Now remove the center white part  and discard it(this step is purely optional but I recommend if you are going to give this peanut butter for kids).

3.Now put the peanuts in a blender, powder it.

4.Keep grinding it when it starts to come together, add powdered jaggery and salt.

5.Then grind again, you can see the oil releasing and it will become sticky.At this stage add half of the oil you have.

6.Keep grinding, then add remaining oil and grind it again.

7.Store in fridge  after 2 days.

  • The texture is purely your choice, if you want it crunchy then grind less.I wanted smooth peanut butter so grinded accordingly.
  • Add odourless cooking oil.
  • If you are using jaggery as such then use cleaned jaggery.
  • You can even use peanuts with skin but that will give a slightly bitter taste.
  • If you want chunk peanut butter then reserve a handful of peanuts and add at the final stage, give a quick pulse so that the peanut pieces come here and there while eating.
