Deepavali is here! This is one of favourite festivals! Brings back lot of fond memories, from hiding under the bed when I was 4 to lighting the 10000 wala when I was 16. Now that I am so far away from homeland, I try to keep up as much tradition as possible. So to start this Deepavali, here is the first sweet I made. Thanks mom for the recipe.

Mixed Nut Brittle
Dry toasted Mixed Nut 1 cup (I toased the nuts in the oven at 300 F for 15 minutes)
Sugar 3/4 cup
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
Caramalize the sugar in medium heat, once it is a golden brown liquid, switch off the stove. Add the lemon juice and the nuts. Mix it well. Pour it in a buttered cold plate. Smoothen it with a a spatula, cut into pieces. Allow it to cool! Voila! Here is your yummy, nutty, crunchy brittle!
