Cashew Masala Chicken

Spiciness, cashew nut creaminess and crunchiness and curry leaf scented Cashew Masala Chicken everyone. I bet hunger throne is killing you softly right now? Must be. Who on earth by the way can say no Cashew Masala Chicken? Especially if you are true lover or sincere and genuine fan of Indian cuisine (Honey Chilli Chicken & Chicken Curry With Potatoes). I know. Anything else should I say? Pretty much nothing much (Ayam Masak Merah, Chicken Devil Curry & Tom Yam Chicken). Tuck in everyone. 

10 chicken pieces (abt 280g)
30g/one handful cashew nuts 
1/2 tbsp ginger paste
1 tsp garlic paste
1 (90g) tomato (slice thinly)
1 onion - 90g (slice)
A pinch of garam masala 
1 1/2 tbsp dried/plain chilli powder (or as you prefer)
1/2 cup coconut milk 
1/2 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. 


  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? :)
