This recipe uses garam masala, a fragrant mix of toasted, ground spices that in India varies from cook to cook. It seems that there are infinite variations, many of which contain cinnamon, cumin, cloves, nutmeg, mace, coriander, cardamom, and black pepper. You can make your own, buy it in the spice section of well-stocked supermarkets, or order it online from Adriana’s Caravan.
Make Ahead Tips
These spiced nuts can be made up to a day ahead.
I have substituted the sugar for a few tablespoons of Pure maple syrup. It adds richness and depth of flavor.
These are easy to make and earned rave reviews from family and friends. I followed another reviewers suggestion and significantly decreased the quantity of sugar to a couple of tablespoons. Used the spiced nuts as a garnish for Spinach Soup with Indian Spices and holiday noshing.
Simple and delicious! I'd like to try it again without the sugar, and come up with something spicy and savory.
I made these using home made garam masala. I made the night before and then re-heated the next day before the dinner party. They were a big hit and we are still snacking on them. They aren't to spicy - but they still have a kick.
