Cinnamon Glazed Almonds

I first tasted these deadly,warm addictive tasty nuts in a nuts shop in the mall.Ever since its been routine for me to shop holding a cone of warm nuts every time I visit the place.These nuts are just so heavenly and today I am here trying my own method of these nuts and they came out equally tasty. I don't know the original method and wished I could.But I am glad I could make equally tasty ones.
As it was the first time I was trying I didn't want to go for a large amount.So,I used a fistful of almonds,2 tbsp sugar,1 tsp softened butter,1/2 tsp cinnamon and 2 tsp water.
In a dry pan,toast almonds and keep aside.In the same pan,add sugar and butter and keep stirring on low flame until it forms a caramel glaze. Add cinnamon and stir ,add 2 tsp water.Stir and when this mixture forms bubbles,add toasted almonds.Stir and take onto a plate covered with aluminum foil. If nuts stick together separate them using hands.
This is my entry for click event of Jai and Bee for the month of December.

    It is so funny because I picked up some honey glazed almonds in a shop last week but put them back when I saw the price. I have made my own before with honey but I love the way you made these almonds with cinnamon they look absoloutley wonderful! Great post Cinnamon almonds sound delicious. :-)

  11. Thanks for leaving your kind comments.. You have an array of recipes here.. I became nostalgic when i saw your post on Thokkudu Laddu, as it was my fav when i was a kid, and my grandma used to send me from Ongole(as soon as they were freshly home made in the adjacent house ).. I never heard of them in my place though.. Thanks for reminding all those.. And your recipes are very good dear, i like your stuffed ridge gourd, dosakaya pachadi, and kura karam,, and many more....
