1 Cup dry roasted Groundnuts / Peanuts
Half tablespoonful Tiger Ginger Powder
A pinch of Tiger Chilli Pepper (optional)
Vegetable Oil, for frying
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 completely turn to paste.
Take a clean and chiffon cloth, scoop the pasty nut into it and try to squeeze out the oil as much as you can. The more oil you can squeeze out, the crunchier your kuli kuli.
Pour the result into a bowl and add Tiger Chilli pepper, Tiger Ginger Powder as desired while mixing with your fingers.
Mould the paste into either small balls or cylindrical sticks. You can choose a fun shape. Add a little water to help it mould easily.
Add the moulded groundnut paste to the heated Vegetable oil and fry until golden brown. Drain from the oil, leave to cool completely.
Enjoy with family and friends over some cool drinks
