When is want to eat Bamba I don’t know what to bless. Some say it’s She’hakol and some say its Ha’adama.

What is the right Bracha?

Answer:

Although some have written that the berachah is ha’adamah (because the peanuts are grown especially for the purpose), the principle ruling is that one should recite she’hakol.

The reason for this is that the form of the peanut has been changed to such a degree that the food loses its original berachah. This is much like chocolate, for which the berachah (according to common custom) is also she’hakol, and not ha’etz.

Best wishes.
