Roasted Cashews

BM # 23   Day 3

Due to the bland flavor of cashews I have never been fond of them.I love these when fried to a deep golden and sprinkled with some kind of spices apart from adding salt.They turn into a delicious munching snack, but .(.well if only the word BUT was not there) no body wants fried stuff. Right?How about roasting these?They become very flavorful and once you start munching on these you will not give up, so for the last day of cooking with zero oil we have these roasted cashews.Though these sound very simple, but mind you if you lack constant supervision, you will land up with bitter , unevenly roasted or probably burnt cashews.

So what you need is…
Oil spray / melted butter
Pre heat oven at 350deg F
Spread cashews in the oven tray in a single layer.
Spray a little oil .
At this point you could add  salt and any herbs or spices to the cashews.
Roast them for about 5 minutes.
Continue roasting for another 5 minutes.
Return to oven and remove after they have turned golden.
Takes about 15-20 minutes.
Let cool and store.

You could spice these with...
Black pepper
Black salt
Red chilly pwd
Chaat masala
