  1. Preheat oven to 150 C / Gas 2. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together 3 tablespoons of sugar, the cumin, cinnamon, ginger and cayenne pepper;
  3. Place the pumpkin seeds on the prepared baking tray, sprinkle with salt to taste. Bake the seeds in the preheated oven until lightly golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
  4. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat and stir in the toasted pumpkin seeds along with 2 tablespoons of sugar.
