Making your own spiced and toasted nuts is absurdly easy, and they're great to eat. This quantity makes a generous bagful, or you could fill two or three smaller, clear bags, tying them with ribbon or string. Quantities can easily be doubled or tripled but if you do, use a larger frying pan so the nuts toast evenly.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 tablespoon cumin seed
  • 2 teaspoons coriander seeds
  • 14 teaspoon dried chili, crushed
  • 12 teaspoon celery salt
  • 14 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 14 teaspoon superfine sugar
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 9 ounces mixed nuts
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

Directions

  1. Crush the cumin, coriander seeds and chilies using a pestle and mortar. Stir in the celery salt, pepper and sugar.
  2. Heat the oil in a small frying pan, add the seed mix and heat for 1 minute. Add the nuts and stir over a gentle heat for a couple of minutes until they are coated in the spices and are starting to turn golden.
  3. Sprinkle with sea salt and leave to cool.
  4. Pack into cellophane bags or small jars.
