A question about a recipe: Gong Bao Ji Ding (Gong Bao Chicken)

Should the peanuts for this recipe be toasted/roasted? I have raw (but can toast). Thanks!

I used roasted salted peanuts and they were fine.

Yes. Roasted unsalted peanuts.

I would use roasted, unsalted peanuts. Raw peanuts should be boiled or roasted before being eaten or they can be bitter.
