Soak the peanuts in very hot water for 10 minutes. Peel the peanuts, add a clove of garlic and a little water and mix thoroughly in a blender.

Peel and cut the potatoes into small pieces.

Boil some water in a large pan and add the meat. Cook for 20 minutes over a moderate heat. Add the green peas, onion and grated carrot. Season with salt and pepper and simmer gently for a further 20 minutes.
