Cashew Nut Masala Chicken

Indian Chicken Curry was the first ever entry for a chicken dish on my blog, thereafter I shared the recipes for Chicken Curry With Potatoes, Curry Chicken Noodles and Honey Chilli Chicken. Now let me bring you this chicken dish - simply spicy-creamy, simply a little crunchy with the cashew nuts and simply aromatic with the curry leaves.

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

Marinate chicken with all the ingredients except coconut milk, lime juice and  oil.
Heat oil and when heated, add marinated 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.

  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? :)
