Bombay Mix

I make this a lot, especially when we have friends around for drinks. Give a whirl, it is a zillion times better than the stuff you can buy.

30g Thin pretzel sticks.
45g Butter.
1 Clove of Garlic crushed.
60g unblanched almonds.
60g Pine nuts.
60g unsalted cashews.
1 teaspoon of Worcester sauce.
1 teaspoon curry Powder (I use my own mix).
1/2 teaspoon Hot chilli powder
.60g Raisins (seedless)

Break the Pretzels into 1 inch sticks, melt th butter in a large skillet.
Add the nuts and cook over a medium heat for about a minute add the rest of the ingredients exept the Raisins and cook for an additional 3 to 4 minutes.
remove the pan from the heat and add the raisins,mix well.
Remove to a serving dish and allow to cool (I cool them in the refrigerator).
Serve with drinks.

Cheer's

Yum! I'll be leaving out the raisins, but sure sounds like a winner for the holidays.... maybe even gift giving! and who knows what I may find to take the place of the raisins (or not).

if you mix Gram flour with a little Turmeric and salt, then add a little White pepper and water and make it into a soft dough, then put a golf ball sized peiceof this into a pototoe ricer and squeeze these strings into hot oil.
then when they float, dry them on kitchen paper to cool, you`ll be much more authentic than using the pretzel sticks :)

it really IS easier than it sounds :)

They are still raisins, just a golden color. I love sultanas in spiced rice! YUM!

Wow, home made Bombay Mix is really an amazing idea. DH will be happy, thanks!

Personally, I think it needs the raisins (I would use sultanas)....alternatively you could try and get wholed of some of those tiny aniseedy sugary candies that are eaten after an Indian meal I suppose.
