World Cup fever is here again. I usually make some simple beer snacks to indulge with an icy cold beer. Just a ritual for us, I guess rather than buying unhealthy ready-made snacks off the supermarket counters. It is so easy even my hubby can put a bowl of these together. No Sweat!
100gm almonds (with or without skin is purely up to your own preference)
100gm groundnuts (with or without skin)
100gm dried cranberries
6 stalks of curry leaves
hard brown sugar
- Put the groundnuts with skin into a toaster to toast for 4 – 5 minutes. Take out to cool and peel off the skin by rubbing the groundnuts between your fingers.
- Heat up a wok with some olive oil and butter. Pluck off all the curry leaves from the stalks and put them all into the wok. Lower down the heat.
- Toss in all the nuts and give them a good stir approximately 5 minutes then add in the cranberries, stir a while more.
- Grind in some sea salt, pepper and grated sugar to taste. leave to cool before placing them into a bottle. Your snack is now ready.
Variations can be made by adding some chili powder, whole dried chili padi (bird-eye chili) or chili flakes to give it some spiciness.
