Garam Masala Nuts

2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
3-1/2 cups sugar
3 cups water
4 cups raw nuts
4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. garam masala
1 tsp. cumin
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp allspice
1-1/2 tsp. cayenne

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with vegetable oil. Combine water and sugar in a large pot and bring to a boil; lower heat to medium; add the salt, nuts and spices.  Simmer for 8 minutes. Remove nuts with a slotted spoon, shaking off the excess syrup, spread onto the baking sheet.  Bake until browned, about 15 minutes.  Remove from the oven and let cool completely, break apart and store in an airtight container.

There's enough syrup to make 3 batches of nuts, you just have to make them 4 cups at a time.
