To be honest I have no idea why fried garlic nuts are called Adobong Mani. In Philippines, Adobo means marinated food, which is why I think this name does not fit on this dish. Most importantly, however, that peanuts in this style are very tasty, often used as a supply of calories for longer trips, but also as a great addition for a cold beer 🙂


2 cups of raw peanuts, shelled
1 whole garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
1 tsp fine salt
1 cup oil
chili, chopped (optional)


Heat the oil into a deep pan over a medium heat. Add the garlic, stir-fry until color turns into golden brown. Remove from the oil and strain to drain excess oil and set aside. In the same pan, add the peanuts. Fry while stirring occasionally for about 10-15 minutes. Remove the peanuts from the pan and strain to drain excess oil. Transfer the peanuts into a bowl. Season with salt. Add fried garlic and mix thoroughly (you can also add chopped chili if you want spicy). Allow to completely cool. Ready. (You can also store it in a jar or in an airtight container)
