How many of us scout through the aisles of a grocery store for some healthy snacks that even taste good? At least I know I do! In fact, while KR is picking up veggies, I go to the snack aisle looking for something interesting. Most of them are fried and the baked ones may or may not taste good. Me being a fussy eater, I do not like every new thing I try and as KR puts it, its best if I make it at home myself as per my liking. For me, the most trying times are the evenings when my hunger is at the peak! Its been a couple of hours post lunch and dinner is far away.

There are tons of ready to eat snacks available in the market but nothing beats something homemade. Almonds are a constant in our house. We munch a few every morning before our customary smoothie. I have always noticed flavored
almond packets in the grocery store but never thought of making them at home myself until now.

Every year we host a Diwali party for our friends here and also gift the a foodie hamper filled with sweet and savory treats. This has become a family tradition now since the last 4 years. Every year I prepare different treats and pack them in DIY gift boxes. I enjoy this part of the ritual as it included my other creative hobby –DIY! I usually start planning the food items and the gift box idea months in advance and begin the execution few weeks before Diwali. This year’s menu included this almonds recipe as I thought this is something unique and would be loved by all. I loved the fact that this recipe is super easy and takes about 5 minutes to prepare.
