I love to make a big batch of these amazing Almonds to keep on hand for snacking on the go or just have a piece of two every time that you are passing by the kitchen or those wonderful expected or unexpected guests or even better – perfect munchies in the evening or with drinks or tea! The flavors and the spices of these Masala Almonds are just the right balance of naughty and nice!
Wishing everyone a healthy, happy and a very fruitful 2020!
