Masala Almonds - Healthy Chakna

Almonds = Healthy but both me and hubby are lazy about eating them. Don't much like them give me cashews anytime ;). I was on the lookout for honey roasted almonds but most recipes I had called for sugar along with honey and so I dropped the idea. Since I had planned to make something with Almonds, I decided to make it in the style of Masala Peanuts that we made during fasting season. So here goes a quick and snappy way to make Masala Almonds. Another note Masala = Spice(s) what I have here is my combination, feel free to explore and experiment. Enjoy them just like that or with your favorite drink.
2 Cups Almonds
1 Tbsp Oil
Roasted Cumin & Pepper Powder
Red Chilli Powder
Amchur / Dry Mango Powder
1. Preheat oven to 375F.
2. Coat almonds with oil and spread them in a parchment lined baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 5-7 mins till crispy.
3. Remove from oven and sprinkle with the masala mix, toss to coat evenly and return to oven for another 5 mins.
4. Remove from oven and let cool for 30 to 40 mins. The almonds will be crispy and spicy perfect for chilled Beer.


  1. wow, never thought of almonds with this spice combination....i always go for the boring salted taste

  2. try it this way, you can also add a pinch of garam masala if you like
