(You can do this step for pre-roasted peanuts too. Put your peanuts in the oven for 5 minutes to deepen their flavor, taking care not to burn them.)

Step 4

Put the peanuts and 1 tbsp oil in a food processor. Grind the peanuts for around five minutes. Initially the peanuts will be very coarse.

If the mixture seems very dry, add a some more oil and keep grinding until the peanuts become paste.

Step 6

Yes, peanuts will turn to a paste if they are continued to be processed. Scrape down the sides as required.
