Spiced Curried Walnuts

Spiced Curried Walnuts


  • 1 lb Walnuts Halves
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 1/2 Tbsp Canola Oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. First you need to blanch walnuts for about a minute in boiling water. Drain and toss well with sugar and oil. Let stand for about 10 minutes.
  3. Prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper.
  4. Spread walnuts in a single layer and place in the middle of the oven.
  5. Check and turn the walnuts every 7-10 minutes until golden. I find the process is about 25 minutes but be careful - one extra minute can turn your golden nuts black.
  6. Remove golden nuts and put in a large bowl. Mix all spices and then toss with the warm nuts.
  7. Spread nuts in a single layer to cool. Once cool, store in a sealed container and Enjoy!!
