Spicy Nuts – Spicy Cashews

These delicious spiced cashew nuts are simple to make and their Indian flavor is delicious. If you are looking for make ahead appetizers, these cashews are great because you can store them at room temperature in an airtight container for up to a week. This also means that you can double or triple the recipe, serve some at your buffet or Superbowl party and have more to much on later in the week. They make a welcome addition to packed lunches too, or as a tasty snack at any time.

You can try using different nuts for this recipe but cashews have a really good flavor, which goes nicely with the Indian spices. The brown sugar on these spiced cashew nuts caramelizes as they cook, turning the nuts into a delicious kind of nut brittle. Kids and adults will both love this sweet, spicy cashew recipe. The nuts are not fiery hot but they are gently fragranced with curry powder and cumin for an aromatic flavor rather than a spicy hot one.

Nuts are popular at buffets and they are also good for Superbowl party food, especially if you spice them and roast them. Mexican fiesta nuts are a sweeter alternative to these spiced cashews, or you could even make both recipes and serve them side by side. Mexican fiesta nuts are sweet though and these cashews are more savory. It is a good idea to keep an eye on the cashews when they are toasting because they can burn quickly. Also, watch them when they are covered in the curry coating and roasting, just to ensure they do not have too long in the oven.
