Curried Pistachios, Soy Nuts and Raisins

Curried Pistachios, Soy Nuts and Raisins

Makes 4 cups


  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons curry powder, mild or hot according to taste
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups shelled pistachios
  • 1 cup roasted soy nuts or sunflower seeds
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup dark raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine sugar, curry powder and salt in a small bowl. Toss pistachios and soy nuts with oil in a separate bowl. Add curry mixture and toss to coat the nuts evenly. Spread mixture in a jellyroll pan. Bake for 7 minutes, shaking pan once or twice, until nuts are lightly browned. Remove and set aside to cool.
  2. While the nuts cool, put raisins in a microwaveable glass measuring cup or bowl and heat for about 5 to 10 seconds until they are warm and soft. Remove and sprinkle evenly over nuts, stirring to coat with spice mixture in the pan. Scrape into a bowl and cool completely. Store in airtight container.
