Spiced Nuts

6 12 2010

 These spiced nuts are great as a quick and easy festive treat to pop out if friends pop over for drinks. I also like to package them up in little cellophane bags and give them as part of a lovely homemade gift.

You can pretty much adjust the spicing to suit your tastes, add something in, leave something out – anything works really.

Ingredients:

200g cashew nuts – you can use any whole nuts of your choice

1 egg white

50g caster sugar

½ tsp sea salt

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp garam masala

½ tsp crushed chillies

Method:

Lightly whisk the egg in a small saucer or bowl

Mix together all the spices,sugar and salt

Pour the egg over the nuts, this will help the spice mixture to really stick to the nuts and make sure they are well coated.

Now add the nuts to the spice mix and mix them around so that all of the nuts are coated.

Place the nuts on a baking tray and pop into an oven that has been preheated to 180 C. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes turning the nuts midway through.
