How to make peanut sauce Vietnamese? Let’s follow the following details:


  • 200g peanuts

  • Spices added to peanut butter

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1-2 tablespoons honey

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil

  • Tools: blender or blender


  • Step 1: Prepare the peanuts
    Delicious peanuts will determine the richness of the finished peanut butter. Usually, we will buy shelled and dried peanuts available at dry food stores, and cereals.
    When choosing to buy peanuts, you should pay attention to the following points:
    The size of peanuts is large and uniform. When holding a handful in the hand, it feels firm and smooth.
    The outer thin crust is reddish brown, glossy, not dry, and not wrinkled.
    Peanut seeds are not rotten, do not rot, and do not appear green mold.
    Peanut seeds have a characteristic aroma and no unusual strange smell.
    After buying peanuts, you can roast them right away because you also need to peel them later.

  • Step 2: Roast peanuts
    If you are careful, you can wash them with clean water, let them dry, and use a towel to dry off the water. Peanuts need to be cooked to be edible and fragrant. You choose one of the following two ways to cook peanuts quickly!
    Method 1: Roast peanuts in a cast iron pan
    You heat the pan and then put all the peanuts in with 2 tablespoons of fine salt (grain salt). You roast on low heat for 10 minutes until the peanuts are fully cooked. During the roasting process, you should pay attention to using chopsticks to stir the peanuts evenly.
    Many people roast peanuts alone, without adding salt. However, you should add some salt. Salt conducts heat well and when roasted together will help peanuts ripen faster. You are not afraid of salt seeping into peanuts making peanuts salty.
    When the peanuts are cooked, pour them out into a basket with big eyes to get rid of all the salt.
    Method 2: Roast peanuts in an oil-free fryer
    Compared to the way of roasting on a pan, using an oil-free fryer helps to cook peanuts more conveniently. You won’t need to add any salt and you won’t have to bother stirring it all the way.
    You turn on the air fryer at 160oC for 10 minutes. After that, you open it to check, shock the peanuts and then leave it for another 5 minutes for the peanuts to be fully cooked. Ripe peanuts have a nutty aroma. You taste 1 or 2 seeds and find them crunchy, not awkward.

  • Step 3: Remove the shell and puree the peanuts
    To remove peanut shells easily, do the following!
    You put all the roasted peanuts in a cloth bag and squeeze gently. Peanut kernels bumping against each other will cause the thin shell to burst.
    Next, you pour the peanuts into a large basket. Lightly squirt so that the heavier peanuts are underneath and the lighter shells are on top. Be sure to squeeze this shell quickly to let it fall out!
    You do this several times until the peanut shells peel off and leave the bare seeds. For peanuts whose stubborn shells are still clinging, peel them off by hand.
    You put all the shelled peanuts into the blender and turn on the button until the peanuts are crumbly.
    To grind peanuts, you need to use a little strong grinder. If you use a fruit grinder with a small capacity, I’m afraid it will damage the machine the most. So pay attention to choosing a multi-function blender or a large-capacity blender!

  • Step 4: Finish the peanut sauce recipe Vietnamese
    When the ground peanuts are fluffy, add cooking oil, salt, honey, or sugar to the mortar. Turn on the blender button until the peanut butter mixture is smooth, then turn off the machine!
    If you want the peanut butter to be richer, add more sugar and salt! You should add a small amount initially, after pureeing you can add a little salt and sugar to taste better. Cooking oil is added to make the peanuts easier to grind and produce more oil. It also helps the mixture to stick better.
    You can gradually add 1 tablespoon at a time during the blending process to make the oil easier to blend and also avoid adding too much and making the peanut butter too liquid. You can use up to 3-4 tablespoons of oil for a smooth consistency.
