It is almost the end of the year. Another year down the tube. It was a good year for me, hope you had an excellent one too. With the many parties in the holiday season I thought I’d post this recipe for Spiced Almonds. They are easy to make, taste really good and you can have them throughout the year.
Faced with the prospect of serving nuts at a party we threw earlier in the month, I searched the web but could not find a recipe to my liking. I did find something on Food Network that looked interesting (see here). So I took that as a start and promptly ignored the directions, adding spices I thought would work. And guess what, they did. So here is the foodydoody take on Spiced Almonds.
2 cups almonds
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp roasted ground cumin
1 tsp Kitchen King Masala (available at Indian Stores)
1/2 tsp salt (or too taste)
1 tsp Chat Masala (available at Indian Stores)
- Dry roast the almonds till they are just starting to brown. Set aside.
- Heat the olive oil in a saucepan and add the cumin, Kitchen King and salt. Cook for a minute or so.
- Toss in the almonds and mix well.
- Remove from heat and add the Chat Masala. Toss well.
- Cool and consume.
