Original recipe uses pecans from Bon Appetit. Pecans are too expensive in Singapore, so I used peanuts instead. I think cashews would wonderful too.

  2. Mix onion powder, garlic powder, 3/4 teaspoon salt, curry powder, and cayenne pepper in small bowl.
  3. Melt butter and honey with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in saucepan over medium heat.
  4. Add nuts and stir to coat; remove from heat.

Pretty good! I think I would scale back on the garlic and onion next time and add in a dash of cinnamon. I also ended up using more honey. The ingredients are all good, just think I'd play with the proportions a little. Thanks for sharing!!

Very tasty! I used peanuts and it was good but they are not my favorite nut and I think pecans would be even better! I liked the sweet, hot, spicy taste. Thanks Watermelon!

These were just delicious watermelon. I used pecans simply because I had them on hand. A good mixture of sweet, salty and spicy. Thanks for posting!
