Garam Masala Spiced Nuts

These are so delicious. And addictive. I have a feeling I know what my neighbors are getting for Christmas gifts this year.....

Seasoned with just garam masala, they acquire a nice complexity of flavor, bit with the smallest amount of work in the kitchen.

Garam Masala Spiced Nuts
NPR: Kitchen Window

1 egg white
3 T sugar
1 1/2 tsp garam masala
1 c cashew, roasted, salted
1 c peanuts, roasted, salted
1 c pecan halves, toasted


Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Whisk together the egg white and 1 teaspoon water until a sturdy froth forms. Stir in the sugar, garam masala and nuts. Mix everything together to coat the nuts well.

Spread the nuts on the baking sheet. Transfer to the oven and bake until crispy and golden, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes.

Remove from the oven, let cool completely, and break apart into pieces to serve.
