Couple of weeks ago on Sunday, late afternoon, when the kids were taking a nap I wandered into the kitchen to make a cup of tea, I saw Aswin roasting almonds. I asked him what it was. He didn't tell me, instead he handed me an almond. With the spice and the saltiness and the crunch, I was intrigued by the spice mix.
"What is it, it's great," I chimed. Chutney powder, he replied. Perfect combination. I mixed in some raisins (you can add cranberries or any other dried berries really) for sweet touch. The almonds were over with tea and immediately another batch was put in for the week.
The almonds make for a great snack when the cravings hit.
The same weekend, I added some chutney powder and fresh herbs in a cheese dip and that went well too.
Sometimes weekends turn out to be fun trying out new things. Even better when the new things are a hit (I've had not so good moments too.) What about you?
