How to make sesame roasted candied almonds

These sesame almonds are quick to make and require little prep. You’ll first need to melt jaggery with coconut oil on a stove on medium-low heat. Stir the mix until you get a sticky consistency. Then take a medium-size mixing bowl and add raw almonds, salt, cinnamon powder, black pepper powder, and warm jaggery mixture, and combine everything well. Make sure the almonds are coated well with jaggery. Then spread the almonds onto a parchment-lined baking tray and roast for 5 minutes. Note that it’s important to use parchment paper, otherwise the almonds will stick to the baking tray.  After roasting for 5 minutes, take the tray out of the oven and sprinkle some sesame seeds, and using forks coat the almonds well. Pop them again in the oven to roast for another 5 minutes. Finally, let the almonds cool completely on the baking tray before breaking them apart. They crisp up as they cool to room temperature.
