Oven Toasted Cashew Nuts Recipe | Spicy Roasted Cashew Nuts

Hope everyone is having a good and relaxing weekend. We had a great time today. My daughter, Happy was very busy throughout the day taking care of her new baby doll. She bathed the doll, changed a new dress and took it to the church. Also, on our way back home she made the doll play slide and swing along with her. It was fun seeing her imitating Jany and me when she talks to the doll. As I type this post, she is making her baby doll sleep by singing rhymes :) 
Let's move on to today's post about the crunchy toasted cashews. (Don't worry about the fat, it is healthy to have few cashews a day). Before starting to Sydney, I was clearing all the leftover items from by fridge. I had some leftover cashew nuts which dad has brought to Chennai two months back. So thought of using it in a recipe. Finally, I tried this guilt free toasted cashews and cashew nut pakoda, which I will be posting it soon.

Cashew Nuts - 200 grams  
To Marinate: 
Olive Oil - 1 tsp 
Chilli Powder - 1/2 tsp 
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp 
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp 
Salt - as required 
1. In a bowl mix the items under 'To Marinate' and form a paste. Then toss the cashew nuts in the masala paste.
2. Make sure the masala coats all the cashew nuts. In a baking tray, lay an aluminium foil and spread the prepared cashew nuts in a single layer. You can sprinkle a little oil on top of the aluminium foil before spreading the cashews. Preheat the oven @ 200 degrees and roast it for 5 to 6 mins. Then take the tray out and turn the cashews so that the other sides are exposed. You can just shake the tin if you are using a cake pan. Then roast it again for another 4 to 5 mins. The cashews will be golden brown and shiny. Allow it to cool completely.
Once it is completely cooled, store it in an airtight container and munch a little each day. I bet it is very addictive. But make sure you restrict yourself to few each day.
Points to remember:
  • I used whole cashew nuts but you can try with halved cashews too. Make sure the cashew is of good quality for better results.
  • Soon after it is out of the oven, it will not be crispy. So allow it to cool completely before serving.
  • You can try with any masala of your preference. For Happy, I just toss it in Salt and Pepper.
Warm Regards,
