* you can use any nut, seed, dried fruit of your choice!
Chop all dried fruit and nuts. I chopped dried fruit on a board, and nuts in a chopper-blender. Let chopping be chunky.
Place frying pan on medium to low heat. Add Cinnamon ghee or any ghee of your choice. (Turmeric and plain ghee are equally good.)
Add 1 tbsp of ghee and fry roast all the dried fruits first, (roughly 3 minutes) and add 1/4th tsp ginger powder and 1/3 of saffron, towards the end, stir in for 5 -7 seconds and switch off the hob.
Repeat this for nuts separately as nuts will take a bit longer to roast (4-5 minutes). And again, repeat for the seeds and coconut shavings as these will fry roast quicker (2 minutes). Fry-roast nuts and seeds to crisper texture.
Mix all the batches together and allow to cool. Store in a mason jar at room temperature for up to 5-7 days,
Serve as a topping on your oats and cereals.
TIP: To get the goodness of Ghee and its infusion, try 2 tablespoons of this compote in a glass of hot milk or any non-dairy milk. Use as a topping on steamed apples. Also munch on, for a sugar-free and gluten-free dessert craving!
