cooked groundnuts with shell in microwave

I have never thought about cooking groundnuts (peanuts) in a microwave until today. It just happened because there was no free space for me on the stove.  It took just three minutes to make this boiled groundnuts with shell in a microwave. We can boil groundnuts salted or unsalted. Buying raw groundnuts with shell is so affordable, they are in season now. I bought a whole mudu of about six cups from the Monday market for just a hundred Naira and when I got home, all the burners were being used by my girls. Had to resort to cooking the peanuts in a microwave and in three minutes they were cooked and crunchy the way I like my boiled groundnuts. If you
prefer the soft boiled groundnuts, then you microwave for about five minutes and enjoy your well cooked peanuts.
All you need is a microwave-safe bowl, some salt, water and a microwave. If you check and it's still too crunchy for you, push back into the microwave and cook for a minute or two more. (Shop microwave).
