Almonds are a rich source of Vitamin E which is a powerful antioxidant. They are also rich in monosaturated fat, one of the two "good" fats responsible for lowering "LDL cholesterol".As almonds are high in protein, around 18 percent, and contain virtually no carbohydrates, they are ideal for diabetics, pre-diabetics or anyone with blood sugar issues.Roasted almonds are a great accompaniment to tea/coffee. They go great with some cool cocktails too.

Ingredients:-

* 2 cups Whole, unsalted almonds
* 1/2 tbsp cumin powder
* 1/2 tbsp coriander powder
* 1 tbsp Chaat Masala (optional)
* 1 tbsp salt
* 2 tbsp Butter / Olive oil


Method:-

* Pre heat the oven to 350F/180C.
* Mix all the ingredients in a bowl , add almonds and toss until all almonds are well coated.
* Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet / 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan.
* Bake for about 10 mins.
* Let it cool completely for about 15 minutes before serving.

Munch with some Coffee/Tea . . . Enjoy :)

Tip:-

You can also add some ground pepper or paprika.
Or

Add some lemon juice for the citrus flavor.

    Hi Vidhya,

    Thanks for trying carrot rice and letting me know.

    For preparing roasted almonds in microwave:

    Lightly coat 1 cup almonds with 1 tablespoon margarine or butter(melted) and arrange in single layer ona microwave-proof plate.
    Microwave on high, stirring every minute (otherwise it will burn) until golden brown, 4 minutes.
    After cooking, try sprinkling hot almonds with a topping.
    Ideas:
    ■ 1/4 tbsp Cumin Powder,1/4 tbsp Coriander powder,1/2 tbsp chaat masala,1/2 tbsp salt.Mix all this and sprinkle.
    ■salt
    ■mixture of cloves, cinnamon, allspice
    ■white sugar, salt, cinnamon
    ■brown sugar, cinnamon

    Try this and let me know how it came out.
