Heat 1/4 cup of any neutral oil (olive, vegetable or peanut) and cook the blended ingredients in the oil on a low flame for approximately 8 min or until the ingredients turn to golden dark brown
Add the chili paste and cook for another 5 minutes, then the blended peanuts, salt and sugar and cook for another 2 minutes
