I thought of making shallow fried cashews and changed my mind to make this microwave version of almonds. The pictures were clicked and edited in a hurry before I left. I am editing the post from my mobile and if there are any typos or jumbled up instructions, let me know. Here’s a simple, quick and easy snack.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup Whole Almonds
  • ¼ – ½ tsp. Oil
  • ¼ tsp. Chili Powder (adjust to taste )
  • ⅛ – ⅙ tsp. Salt ( adjust to taste )
  • ⅛ tsp. Cumin Powder

Preparation

  • Take almonds in a microwave safe wide bowl.
  • Add rest of the ingredients and toss to mix.
  • Microwave for 1 minute, remove and mix well.
  • Put it back in the microwave and roast for another 30 seconds.
  • Mix well and keep aside for few seconds or a minute. Almonds will continue to roast.
  • Serve as a snack.

Note:

  • I roasted for a minute and then for ½ minute. I could hear almonds pop at the end of 1 minute and again at the end of 30 seconds. I would recommend roasting for 45 seconds and then in increments of 15-20 seconds until almonds and light brown and toasted.
  • I mentioned approximate measures for the spices. Adjust to taste.
  • Add any mix of spices to your liking.
