How to Roast Peanuts at home?

Homemade Salted and Roasted Peanuts (2 methods) | Chef in Frame

Do you know? You can roast Peanuts easily at home, in no big time and techniques. Just few things you'll need and get the best quality Salted and Roasted Peanuts ready.
When first time I tried this, it went so perfect that I come to share the whole method with you. You'll love the Smell of Peanuts lingering in the home, the salted and crunchy peanuts in your mouth that's feel almost idyllic as a winter snack!
Well, before I start the whole method. I'm gonna give you two options for roasting peanuts. First one is to use oven for roasting and preheat initially before preparation.
Another method is applicable in case you don't have oven (like me) use Baking in Pot procedure to roast the peanuts. Just a little time difference and all the same steps to follow...
One more trick I used there is BUTTER, that make these peanuts insanely flavorsome. Most method I found from here and there, don't use butter or fat as peanut has already it. But believe me when you use butter (however, there's not too much) , peanuts will show their magic. Pinky Promise!

These peanuts are roasted with out butter (seem little dry. Huh?), and they taste so good but not as good as the buttered one.
Okay, now I'm leaving bunch of  choices for you!
Here the method start...

Ingredients
  1. 1/2 tbsp butter (melted, salted)
  2. 1 tsp salt
  3. 2 cups raw unshelled Peanuts*
*If you can't find unshelled or facing difficulty in removing their shells, placed the peanuts in the fridge overnight. Shell then easily peel out with hand.
