Masala mixed nuts are a delightful and flavorful snack that combines various nuts with a blend of aromatic spices. Here’s a recipe to make Masala Mixed Nuts:
- 2 cups mixed nuts (such as almonds, cashews, walnuts, peanuts, etc.)
- 1 tablespoon oil (vegetable, olive, or any neutral oil)
- 1 teaspoon cumin powder
- 1 teaspoon coriander powder
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder (adjust to taste)
- 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
- 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
- 1/2 teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- Fresh mint or cilantro leaves are optional as a garnish.
- Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, combine the mixed nuts and drizzle them with the oil. Toss to coat the nuts evenly with the oil.
- In a small bowl, mix together the cumin powder, coriander powder, chili powder, turmeric powder, garam masala, salt, and black pepper.
- Sprinkle the spice mixture over the nuts and toss to coat them thoroughly with the spices.
- On the baking sheet that has been prepared, distribute the salted nuts in a single layer.
- Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until the nuts are golden brown and fragrant. Stir the nuts once or twice during baking to ensure even toasting.
- When the nuts are completely cooled, remove the baking sheet from the oven.
- Once cooled, transfer the Masala Mixed Nuts to an airtight container for storage.
- If desired, garnish with fresh cilantro or mint leaves for an added touch of freshness.
These Masala Mixed Nuts are perfect as a snack for gatherings, parties, or just for enjoying anytime. The combination of roasted nuts and flavorful spices creates a satisfying and savory treat.
Note: Feel free to adjust the spice quantities and types of nuts according to your preference. You can also experiment with adding other spices or herbs to customize the flavor of the mixed nuts to your liking.
