    Absolutely love this recipe. I use the almonds for a snack, but find they're too big to go over a salad, so when making recipe for a salad I use a mixture of softer nuts like pinenuts and chopped pecans. Makes a softer mix and lovely through a salad.

    Recipe calls for chili paste but the photo looks as though there are chopped chilis - what gives the best result?

    You can use either! Whichever you can get easiest locally.

    Great recipe. I couldn't find chili paste in my grocery store so I used red curry paste. It was delicious but as spicy a I would like. I will get the chili paste and try that next. Just wondering how many I can eat and still be in ketosis.

    That's going to vary from person to person but too many nuts at once can be problematic so use caution!

    Great recipe. I used sliced almonds so that it wasn't so chunky. I didn't find chili paste, so I used a tbsp of tomato paste with some cayenne pepper for heat. It wasn't spicy enough for my taste, so I added a little bit more seasoning. Very good for a snack and I also have used it on top of a salad with great results! Thanks!

    It's a great recipe. Very easy to make. I did not have a chili paste, so used chili sauce and chili flakes instead. Delicious! Had to add an extra serving of almonds as it looked like there was a bit much of oil
