Another delicious Bangladeshi snack for you!

Bangladeshi Snack food

Bangladeshi snack food – so so good!

Want to try an incredibly tasty stack? This Bangladeshi snack is a good place to start. I made it tonight for my wife and kids before dinner and it was gone in minutes.

Much better for you than crisps, these spicy almonds are perfect finger food but they are also nice sprinkled on tandoori chicken or curries.

I hope you give this one a try. If you do, be sure to let me know what you think. I’ve got a lot more Bangladeshi snack food recipes to share with you.

Sounds lovely, but when do you add the coriander, as it’s not mentioned in the instructions? Thank you .
