Default spicy roasted pumpkin seeds - home made !!

I got that recipe (and pictures) from my friend from UK (thanks Riz!):

--------------------------------------------------------

i collected lots of seeds from my pumpkin, i read the best ones to oven roast are the sugar pumpkin seeds, mine is, so i am ok, but i am not certain about that, i am sure you can roast either variety of seeds..




give the seeds a good rinse with luke warm water, making sure you get the orange stringy bits off the seeds...

after they have been cleaned pat them dry with a clean kitchen towel or just regular clean towel..




for spicy roasted seeds you will need some red chilli powder, chilli flakes, salt

mix that in a with some veg oil






put the seeds in the bowl of your spice mixture and stir well with fork so all the seeds are coated with the spice mix





you will need a flat baking tray, i cover mine with tin foil, and brush a little oil on it so the seeds dont stick....

spread them out evenly, minor overlapping is ok, but try to spread them out evenly as you can






i roast them at 230C gas mark 5 for 15 minutes first, you can see the flakes and chili stuck to the seeds..



after around 15 mins i turn them over with a fork as best i can for another 15 minutes..

they look nice and brown, at this point its best to take a few out, make sure they are not hot when you pop one in your mouth, if its crunchy and spicy, they are done, if they are a bit chewy leave them in for another 5 minutes





whoa!!!! i cant believe they are spicy crunchy and really tasty, i am rally peased with the results, and in future i will never throw away my pumpkin/squash seeds

i put them in this small jar..
