In India, it is common to soak almonds overnight and peel them and have them as a daily vitamin boost. Almonds are blanched by soaking them in water for about 4 hours, peeling their skin. Ground almonds are used to thicken curries - to make rich restaurant style curries or for entertaining. Sliced almonds are used in Indian pilafs and with Vegetables Stir Fry.


Almond Pistachio Saffron Curry Sauce Restaurant Style Recipe
1/2 cup raw unblanched almonds
1/2 cup shelled, unsalted raw pistachio nuts
2 Tbsp ghee
1 large onion, peeled and grated
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp mace
1/2 tsp freshly ground white pepper
2 green cardamom pods, husked, and ground
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 pinch nutmeg
1/2 tsp saffron threads, soaked in 2 tablespoons hot water
