  3. 2 Cups Water
  4. 4 Dry Red Chilies
  5. 3 Buds Garlic
  6. 1 Tsp Sugar
  7. 3 Tsp Sesame Seeds (Til)


Roast the Peanuts We will start with roasting the Peanuts in a non-stick pan on low flame (as shown). Roast until peanuts turn light golden brown in color. Once done, switch off the stove.
Grind all ingredients in grinder Now add the roasted Peanuts, Salt, Sugar, dry Red Chilies, Sesame Seeds and Garlic in a grinder jar. Grind them well to make a powder.
Take out the Peanut Mixture in bowl Take out the Peanuts powder mixture in a bowl.
Add sugar in water, mix well We need to make simple sugar syrup now. Take a pan and add water. Heat it on medium flame. Once, water is hot (no need to boil), add sugar and stir. The idea is to let the sugar melt, so a normal hot water would work here.
Add the mixture in sugar syrup Keep the stove on low flame. Add the Peanut mixture powder in sugar syrup. Mix well.
Mix well your Peanut Sauce Keep the stove on low flame only and keep on string it to avoid burning of sauce.
Peanut sauce is ready Cook it for about 2 minutes and then switch off the stove. Your Peanut sauce is ready to serve with any of your favorite dish. Enjoy!!!
