Green Salad Takeover: Madras Mapled Walnuts (for an amazing salad!)

Takeover a simple green salad with a spicy topping like these Madras Mapled Walnuts.

The best salads have lots of layers, textures and of course, a good crunch. I'm a fan of adding nuts to any salad, giving it a bit of heartiness and a quick protein boost.

But when I really want to get fancy, I always make Madras Mapled Walnuts which goes with almost any salad. I love the spiciness of every bite contrasting the greens with all the other veggies. The time investment is only about 10 minutes!

The perfect little spicy little topping to take an ordinary green salad to the next level! 


Method of Preparation: 

1) Preheat oven to 275F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2) In a saucepan, melt ghee or butter. Add maple syrup and ARVINDA'S MADRAS MASALA and mix together. Cook for 3-5 minutes on medium-high or until maple syrup slightly bubbles and reduces. Add walnuts and coat well.

3) Spread walnuts onto baking sheet and bake in oven for 10-15 minutes or until slightly golden brown. Be careful not to burn walnuts. Top on your favourite salad! This will also add an Indian bite to a cheese platter.


1 CUP walnuts halves, coarsely chopped
