My mum makes these savoury roasted nuts every Christmas. And they are insanely addictive. I must pass on my thanks and a kick in the shin to Nigella Lawson for passing on this recipe – the bar snacks at Union Square apparently. I’m sure they are responsible for at least 1kg of the obligatory 3 kg I put on over Christmas time.
Spiced Nuts Recipe
500g raw mixed nuts
1½tsp garam masala
1tsp celery salt
2tbsp olive oil
2tbsp brown sugar
3 sprigs rosemary, finely chopped to make about 3tsp
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, dump it on a tray and shove it in the oven until golden and roasted. (Not sure how long this is…probably ten minutes. I probably should have paid attention when making these things).
Tip onto a lined baking try and season with some salt.
Can be served warm or cooled.
And tell me these aren’t good.
