Cashew Nut Masala Chicken

Say yeh everyone. Say yeh to cashew nut masala chicken. Yeh all the way to spiciness, creaminess and thank you curry leaf for lending your scent to this dish (Honey Chilli Chicken, Indian Fish Curry, Spicy Minced Mutton Potato & Chicken Curry Potatoes). What more can I say please? Help me out here. Okay, I get it. We love spicy food to utter joy. How about drenching Sambar or Egg Rasam over rice and tilting every bit of this Cashew Nut Masala Chicken as a punching power meal? I know you are already rolling on the floor. I better leave you alone before you bite my flesh out of hunger. Bye. 

10 chicken pieces (abt 280g)
30g/one handful cashew nuts 
1/2 tbsp ginger paste
1 tsp garlic paste
1 (90g) tomato (sliced thinly)
1 onion - 90g (sliced)
1/4 tsp garam masala or all spice powder
1 1/2 tbsp dried/plain chilli powder (or as you prefer)
1/2 cup coconut or carton milk
1 tbsp lime juice
5 to 6 sprig curry leaves
4 tbsp oil
Salt to taste

Mix chicken with all the ingredients except coconut milk, lime juice and  oil.
Heat oil and when heated, add chicken.
Stir and cook for about 3-4 mins.
Pour milk and continue to cook until gravy thickens. 
Pour lime juice and continue to stir until gravy dries up totally.  Remove from heat. 

Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!

  1. Looks delicious! I love Indian food. I'll have to try it. One thing I noticed in the recipe is that it indicates adding milk, and I don't see it in the ingredients list. What type of milk and how much? :)
