Salt and Chilli Almonds

Crunchy salt roasted almonds with a hint of chilli.

Hari says

Nuts are a great source of protein and nurishing plant oils so they make great snacks and salad toppers. Ideally, from a healthy perspective you should have these unsalted but I do like to keep a jar of the salted variety in my larder. I know they can be expensive to buy so here is my DIY method of making your own salt and chill dry roasted almonds. 

  • Ingredients
  • Method
  • 500g almonds
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp hot water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp garlic granules
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 190°C degrees and line a large baking sheet with silicone or grease proof paper.
  2. Place the raw almonds in a large mixing bowl
  3. Stir 1 teaspoon of salt into the hot water until most of it dissolves and pour over the nuts in the bowl and mix until they are all coated.
  4. Place the almonds onto the prepared baking sheet in a single layer and bake in the oven for about 8 minutes, stir well and spread back into a single layer and bake another 7-8 minutes (about 15 minutes total). Keep an eye on them as they can burn quickly.
  5. Mix the olive oil with the chilli powder and garlic granules.
  6. Place the hot nuts back into the large bowl and pour the olive oil over them. Toss well until all the nuts are coated.
  7. Sprinkle on a little sea salt and chilli flakes and mix through.
  8. Spread the nuts out on the baking sheet to cool and crisp up. They will soak up the oil as they cool.
  9. Store in an airtight container at room temperature and enjoy as a snack.
