Kuli Kuli: How to make a Northern peanut snack

Kuli-Kuli is a crunchy snack made from dried and fried groundnuts.

Kuli Kuli is a light snack that can be eaten at any time of the day and is best served with a soaked Garri. Here’s how to make a Northern peanut snack.

Ingredients for preparing Kuli-Kuli

2 cups peeled, salted and roasted groundnuts

Peanut butter

1 teaspoon ground pepper

1 and half a teaspoon of ginger powder or grated ginger to taste

Onion slices (optional)


  1. Crush or pound the ground nuts / peanuts with ginger until smooth. You can also use a powerful food processor. Do not allow the mixture to turn into a full paste.
  2. Take a clean and dry muslin cloth, scoop in a pasty nut and try to squeeze as much oil out of it as possible. The more oil you can squeeze out, the crisper your coolie-coolie will be.
  3. Pour the result into a bowl and add the ground pepper while stirring with your fingers.
  4. Shape the paste into small balls or cylindrical sticks. You can choose a fun shape if you want. Add a little water to make it mildew easily.
  5. Heat enough oil in a non-stick frying pan until the oil begins to smoke. You can add onion slices to the oil to give it a little flavor.
  1. Add the molded paste into the oil and allow to fry till golden brown on all sides.
  2. Remove from oil, place in absorbent paper and allow to cool.

Food hack: If the kuli kuli turns out softer than expected, you can put it in a preheated oven to dry and harden it.

Your delicious kuli kuli is ready to serve. Eat with Garri (cassava flakes) soaked in cold water.
