Sweet Peanut Soup

peanut soup

This dessert brings back my old memory when I work in Malang, small city In Indonesia. There are an old shop sells all sort of Chinese fried bread, but I was there mostly for peanut soup, or so called "wedang kacang" or "kacang kuah". This peanut soup'll yummiliciously melt in your mouth. Usually it served with Chinese savoury fried bread, cakwe, Chinese Indonesian term. I'm sure there are more terms for this kind of bread.

I'll 'bring' this dessert for Mochachocolata Rita's Chinese take out party to celebrate her 88 post. As I think most of friends bring main dishes, I better come up with dessert. ^___^

peanut soup

How to make then ???? well practically it's easy to make, doesn't need much ingredients as long as you have raw blanched peanut, sugar, bit of salt, ginger and and you don't have problem with your tap water.

If you have pressure cooker:
350 gr raw blanched peanut,
75 gr sugar or to taste,
2cm ginger peeled and crushed,
bit of salt
1500 ml water
cook them for 40 minutes .

If pressure cooker still stay there in store, you definitely more time to cook. Soak for one night, and cook for about 2-3 hours in low heat, cook until very tender. It's worthwhile for the -melt in your mouth- peanut soup. I love this.
