Print Recipe

  • coriander seeds 1 ½ teaspoons
  • cumin seeds 1 ½ teaspoons
  • fennel seeds 1 teaspoon
  • curry powder 1 teaspoon
  • olive oil 2 teaspoons
  • garlic 2 cloves, finely chopped
  • lemon zest of ½
  • rosemary leaves 1 teaspoon finely chopped
  • raw macadamia nuts ½ cup chopped
  • raw cashew nuts ½ cup chopped
  • smoked paprika ½ teaspoon
  • flaky sea salt 1 teaspoon
  • ground chilli or chilli flakes good pinch
  • maple syrup 1 tablespoon


  1. Crush coriander, cumin and fennel seeds in a spice grinder or mortar and pestle and mix with curry powder.

  2. Heat olive oil in a medium fry-pan on low-medium heat. Add garlic, spice mixture, lemon zest and rosemary, and cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.

  3. Add nuts and continue cooking, stirring to coat everything nice and evenly, for a few minutes to lightly toast the nuts.

  4. Add smoked paprika, sea salt, chilli (if using) and maple syrup – the maple syrup will bubble away. Stir to coat everything and keep cooking for a further 1 minute or so. Turn off heat and transfer to a dish or bowl to cool completely and go crunchy before storing. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 weeks.
