Crunchy peanut Butter

After three hot methi ke paranthe with tomato ki chutney, my not very slim hubby makes for himself a toast sandwich of chunky peanut butter on one slice and orange marmalade jam on other.

And then runs into the bedroom when I ask him for a small bite.

Will someone please give him a lesson on healthy eating?

Its not my fault, I buy these things for the kid, who plays the whole day and needs rich food.

Hmm! Maybe you could introduce him to the concept of eating little and eating often. :-)

Here's a recipe for home made peanut butter ;)
1 cup of Peanuts (good if you can find organic peanuts).
Grind them in a mixer with some (organic) jaggery, some salt and some oil (sesame, peanut or olive oil works well). Crusssshhhh. (My friends use cycle mixer - go for a ride and by the time they're back, the grinding it done).

Taste, check if the salt/sweetness is okay and add accordingly!
Lick it up with the finger! Hubby will be happier, kid will be healthier!

1 cup of Peanuts (good if you can find organic peanuts). Roast them, till they turn brown but not black.

Then grind them in a mixer with some (organic) jaggery, some salt and few spoons of oil (sesame, peanut or olive oil works well). Crusssshhhh. (My friends use cycle mixer - go for a ride and by the time they're back, the grinding it done).

Taste, check if the salt/sweetness is okay and add salt/jaggery accordingly!
