1 egg white, at room temperature
3 tablespoons sugar
1-2 teaspoons salt
1 ½ teaspoons garam masala
3 cups toasted nuts (we use pecans, walnuts, & pecans)
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment or a silicone mat. If you use foil, reduce cooking time and watch that the nuts don’t scorch.
Whisk the egg white and one tablespoon hot water until you have a thick froth (almost like foam on a latte). Stir in the sugar & garam masala. Whisk until the mixture is smooth and sugar is partially dissolved. Toss the nuts with the mixture and then spread the nuts on a cookie sheet. Bake for about 40 minutes. Stir the nuts occasionally. Note: I tend to like my nuts sweet and spicy, so I would add another tablespoon sugar and a half teaspoon of hot curry.
