Recipe : Honeyed Coconut Nuts (Vegan)

This snack went down well at Pre-Xmas dinner. Its a great bar snack too and jazzes up the plain nuts normally served with drinks.

1 tbsp groundnut / sesame oil
2 tbsp honey
2 cups nuts (I used a mixture of cashewnuts and almonds)
1 cup dessicated coconut
2 fresh green or red chillies chopped (deseed them if you don't want it spicy)
salt to taste
fresh ground pepper to taste

Heat the oil in a wok or large pan.
Stir in the honey (it may seem counter intuitive to add liquid to hot oil, but trust me, the honey doesn't splatter)
Mix well and in a few seconds, add the nuts and dessicated coconut and stir fry until golden brown.
Add the chillies, salt and fresh pepper to taste.
Mix well.
Serve warm or cooled.
Serve in newspaper cones, to feel like a street snack.

Variations :
If you want a cheaper snack, use roasted groundnuts.
