Don't do it!
Be very careful not to over do it if you use a blender, we really recommend NOT using one, its too easy to ruin the balance of flavours
Next add 1-2 tbs lime juice, chicken stock powder, fish sauce and a good measure of sugar mix well together and do a taste test, adjust as required
Now add some water and mix in the peanuts the resulting mix should not be too water nor too thick see video
