How to cook Adobong Mani or Fried Peanuts with Garlic

During my college years this is the only snack that I can afford. Peanuts are one of the popular snack many Filipinos love, that is why you can find many Peanuts vendors in every busy sidewalk, schools and office entrance.   These street vendors roasts the peanuts using a frying pan and place them in an aluminum tray then sprinkle it with fine salt. Then they serve it  in small brown paper pouches, they use  a small glass about twice the size of a shot glass. Restaurants and Bars in the Philippines serve Adobong Mani as “Pulutan” paired with beer.

Filipinos believed that Peanuts is a brain power booster.  Have you ever wondered why they call Roasted Peanuts or Fried Peanuts with garlic as “Adobong Mani” ?   We all know that ADOBO dish has vinegar, soy sauce and garlic. If you know the answer why they call this Adobong Mani drop us a comment below.

    Will try this. It’s cheaper to buy raw peanuts and roast them yourself.

    Two of my favorite foods together..peanuts and garlic. Yum! I’ll have to try to make this. I also like the idea of the chili oil to spice it up. Did you use chili oil in the one you have pictured?

    I always eat this stuff, adobong mani. I like them when it is newly cooked. I usually bought them in street vendors and it’s unresistible. I love the it’s garlic smell and crunchiness.
