Spiced Almond Powder

Spiced Almond Powder

Want to eat spicy almonds? I don't mean the whole almonds, but make a spice powder out of them and eat with hot rice and ghee! How about that? We all know almonds are healthier, right? If you like spicy, desi version like me, then try this powder and you’ll definitely like the taste! 

Check out the health benefits of almonds well explained at this site. Really good!

Whole Almonds

Now let’s talk about the recipe. 

  • 1 cup whole Almonds
  • ½ cup Coriander Seeds (Dhaniyalu, Dhaniya)
  • ¼ cup dry Coconut Powder
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds (Jeela Karra)
  • A pinch of Asafetida (Inguva, Hing)
  • 4 or 5 dry Red Chilies (Adjust according to individual taste)
  • Salt as required
  1. Dry roast all the ingredients and keep aside to cool down.
  2. When the mixture cools down, dry grind it into a fine powder along with salt. It’s ok if it is little coarse, still tastes great. 
  3. This powder can be stored in an airtight container up to a month.
  4. Enjoy with steaming rice and a dollop of ghee! 
  5. Yummy!!
  6. Isn’t it so simple?
