I've given you quantities to make just one serving, but this recipe can be easily doubled or tripled to accompany more snackers. I adapted this recipe from The Medicinal Chef and have added the use of tikka curry spice mix and poppyseeds. The flavor reminds me of Bombay Mix or chiwda, a popular Indian snack.

Tehse curried cashews are perfect for a snack for one

As far as snacking goes, this is a very basic, but flavorful recipe. It's perfect for pouring into a bag and taking out with you or curling up in front of the television. The possibilities for customization are endless: you could use pecans, hazelnuts or peanuts if you didn't prefer cashews. Swap the poppyseeds for sesame or nigella seeds and play around with different spice combinations or curry spice mixes.
