Method

  1. Heat a heavy based fring pan and dry-fry the seeds until they start to brown. Shimmy the pan `chef-style' to keep them from burning
  2. Add the olive oil and garlic and heat just to take the raw edge off the garlic
  3. Add the chillies, sugar and salt, remove from the heat and let the sugar melt and cover the seeds
  4. Stir well to coat all of the seeds
  5. Add to a serving bowl and drizzle with the lime juice
