CASHEWNUT CHICKEN CURRY


This chicken dish is cooked with Curry Powder, which is normally used in other Countries to make a curry. We don't make use of this spice powder in India. It is a mixture of many spices based on South Asian Cuisine.


Ingredients:
Chicken .... 250 gms (boneless, preferably thigh pieces cut into cubes)
Onions ..... 2 (chopped finely)
Tomato .... 1
Garlic paste ... 1 tbsp
Ginger .......... 1 tsp (grated)
Curry powder .. 2-3 tbsps
Cayenne pepper... 1 tsp
Cashew nuts ... 8-10 powdered + 5 fried for garnishing.
Coconut milk ... 1/4 cup (you can also use cream)
Salt ............. to taste
Oil

Method:



1. Heat oil in a pan and saute the ginger and garlic. Add onions and stir fry until golden brown.

2. Now add the curry powder, cayenne pepper and stir to blend.

3. Add the chicken pieces, tomato and salt and saute for a couple of minutes. Add about one cup water and simmer to cook.

4. When almost done, stir in the cashewnut powder and coconut milk. Keep the consistency of the gravy as per your choice. If you want to serve with rice, you can add 1 cup water and simmer for some time.Garnish with fried cashewnuts and serve.
