1/2 c Raw unblanched almonds
1/2 c Shelled, unsalted raw pistachio nuts
2 tb Butter or mild vegetable oil
1 lg Onion, peeled and grated
1/2 ts Ground coriander
1/4 ts Mace

Serve this smooth sauce on grilled meat or chicken breasts. One recipe will be enough for
about 1 1/2 pounds of cooked meat. For an exotic twist on an old standby, simmer 1 1/2
Pounds of your favorite meatballs in it for 15 minutes.
Combine almonds and pistachios in a 10-inch frying pan and dry-roast over medium heat for
8 to 10 minutes. Place in a blender or a food processor and reduce to a powder. Set aside.
Heat butter in a heavy 2-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until
lightly browned. Stir in spices and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in saffron,
cream, salt and powdered nuts. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and
simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 12
to 15 minutes.
