Spiced Nuts - perfect for those who prefer savoury treats!

I am one of those people who prefer savoury to sweet.  Given a choice between an entree or dessert, I prefer having and entree… or two!  So the next treat in my All They Want for Christmas Series is perfect for people like me!   These Indian-inspired spiced nuts are incredibly addicting.  They are moreish and it is impossible to stop at one.  This recipe was adapted from the Taste website.
