Curry Snack Mix

What you’ll need
1 cup roasted, salted cashews
1 cup pretzels
1 cup cheese crackers
1 cup Japanese rice crackers
1 cup corn chips, broken into bite-sized pieces
1 to 2 tbsp curry powder
Maldon salt
Zest from 1 lime

How to make it
In a big bowl, combine the cashews, pretzels, both types of crackers and corn chips. Toss 
it all together as you sprinkle on the curry powder, tasting after the first tablespoon to see if you need more. Season with salt to taste.

Spread the mix on a baking sheet and warm in a 180°C oven until toasty, about 5 minutes. Then transfer the mix to a serving bowl and top it with the lime zest.

Beers to Pair
Find the perfect matchup in South Africa’s ever-expanding selection of craft beers. Here are the homegrown brews you need to wash down your homemade match-day snacks with:

1. Devil’s Peak The King’s Blockhouse IPA
India pale ales work well with spicy foods. Try this American-style IPA; its robust spiciness will compliment the chillies’ bite.

2. Nottingham Road Pye-Eyed Pilsner
Cleanse your palate between mouthfuls with refreshing swigs of a crisp pilsner. This well balanced, easy-drinker has got the right amount of bitterness and a mild presence of hops.

3. Triggerfish Brewing Empowered Stout
Come to the dark side of beer and bring out the boldness of pork carnitas or charred steak enchiladas with this full-bodied, meat-friendly stout.
