Almond Pâté


While exploring delectable Tasty Palettes for recipes with my best-loved ingredient,I was excited to have found this savory Almond Pâté recipe. Pâté is French for paste,usually prepared with ground meat and other seasonings.But this Almond Pâté has no meat ,just almonds ,flavored with herbs and spices;makes a perfect quick-fix spread on toasts and sandwiches.Another perfect recipe Tried and Tasted,thanks to Suganya and the host of T&T this month Sweatha of Tasty Curry Leaf
(I made few minor changes to the Original recipe)
Recipe

Method
