If you like honey roasted nuts, you should try my version of this snack. I combined several varieties of nuts and spiced it up with some homemade garam masala, a spice mix common in India and other Asian countries. Garam masala is a spice blend containing ground peppercorns, cardamom, nutmeg, and cinnamon, among other spices. You can find it in Indian grocery stores or large supermarkets in the spice aisle. Or you can make your own which you can keep for several weeks and use in many other dishes.
Almost any kind of nut would work well here, so feel free to experiment. The spiced nuts can be stored in an airtight container for up to a week. Munch on these at home or bring to a party as a healthy and exotic snack that will wow any crowd.
