Spiced Candied Nut Clusters

If you love snacking on nuts and bored of store-bought spiced nuts, you will be amazed how easy and tasty they are to make at home. These sweet, slightly spicy and salty nuts are perfect to munch anytime of the day. These nuts will turn out to be the one of those things that you don't want to put it down. With your own combination of spice mix, you will go nuts over these spiced nuts. Also, nuts are a great way to add good fats to your diet, but make sure you snack'em mindfully. And here goes the recipe,

Ingredients:

1 cup raw Almonds
1 cup raw Walnuts
1/2cup raw Cashews
1/4 cup raw Pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup raw Sunflower seeds
1/4cup + 2tbs White Sugar 
3/4tsp Cumin powder
1/2tsp Red Chilli powder
1/2tsp Cardamom powder
1 1/4tsp Salt
1 large Egg white

How to:

Place the oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 300 degrees. 
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and keep it aside.
In a big bowl beat the egg white until foamy. 
Add the nuts and seeds into the bowl, and stir until coated.
In a small bowl, mix together the sugar, cumin powder, chilli powder, cardamom powder and salt.
Sprinkle the sugar-spice mix over the nuts and mix to coat well.
Now spread the coated nuts on the baking sheet in a single layer.
Bake for 35 mins and let cool on the sheet for an hour.
Once cooled, the sugar hardens and you can break'em into bite sized pieces. 
Serve as a party snack or on the-go munchies.
