how to roast monkey nuts

Monkey nuts are another name for peanuts that are still in their shell. Here's how you can roast them:


  • Raw monkey nuts (in their shell)
  • Salt (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).
  2. Rinse the monkey nuts under cool water and dry them with a paper towel.
  3. Place the monkey nuts in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  4. Roast the monkey nuts in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the shells are lightly browned and the nuts inside are roasted and fragrant.
  5. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the monkey nuts cool for a few minutes.
  6. If desired, sprinkle some salt over the monkey nuts and toss them to coat evenly.
  7. Serve the roasted monkey nuts warm or store them in an airtight container at room temperature.

Roasting monkey nuts can be a delicious and satisfying snack. Be sure to let them cool down before cracking open the shells, as they can be hot.
