Cooking time can vary depending on how old the peanuts are. So if the peanuts aren’t cooked through in the time indicated, don’t worry, just cook them a little longer. If you don’t have a pressure cooker, you can just boil them in a large pot. It will about 2 to 3 hours. My grandma likes her food spicy and drizzles her peanuts with chili oil. Add 1/2 tsp of chili powder to 2 tbsp oil and let sit for a couple of hours. Then drizzle over the peanuts. It adds a delicious spicy kick. In India, it is common to add turmeric to the water before boiling the peanuts. I don’t like to add turmeric though because it will turn your fingers yellow as you eat the peanuts.
