‘Bombay mix’ spiced nuts

‘Bombay mix’ spiced nuts

Inspired by the flavours of classic Bombay mix, this is an addictive combination of spicy, sweet, savoury and salty flavours – and almost guaranteed not to make it past 31 December. Another recipe that you’ll probably want to double up on for your own festive-season drinks.

Ingredients

  • 500g mixed nuts (such as peanuts, cashews, almonds, pistachios and walnuts)
  • 50g desiccated coconut
  • 1 tsp black peppercorns
  • 8 dried curry leaves
  • 1 tbsp sea salt flakes
  • tbsp ghee or coconut oil
  • tbsp clear honey or maple syrup
  • ¾ tsp hot chilli powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp garlic granules

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC, gas mark 4. Spread the nuts out on a tray in a single layer; roast for 10 minutes until golden brown. Add the coconut to the tray and roast for a further 3-5 minutes, until toasted.

  2. Meanwhile, use a pestle and mortar to grind the peppercorns, curry leaves and salt together until broken down to a coarse powder. Melt the ghee or oil and honey or maple syrup in a small pan, then add the curry leaf mixture and the remaining spices. Cook for 2 minutes. Once the nuts are roasted, tip them into a bowl and pour the spiced ghee over them, stirring with a metal spoon until all the nuts are well coated. Allow to cool before decanting into an airtight container. These will keep for up to 2 weeks.
