Kaju Curry

From last 2-3 months I didn't try any new dish. Don't know why but was not feeling very enthusiastic about cooking anything new. My husband suggested me to do some variety dish for Sunday lunch. Then after a looooooooooooooooooong discussion we decided to make kaju curry and neer dosa. Since I was trying the kaju curry for the first time so he was my guide in making it. Finally it turned out very good. Even my in-laws liked it :-)

Cashew Nuts (Kaju) - 1 cup

Onion - 2 medium

Tomatoes - 1 big

Garlic - 7-8 cloves

Ginger- 1 inch

Khoya - 1 tablespoon

Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon

Red chilli powder - 1 teaspoon

Garam Masala - 1 teaspoon

Sugar - 1 teaspoon (optional)

Pure ghee- 2 tablespoon

Cashew nuts - 7-8

Coconut milk - 1/2 cup

Salt as per taste.

Soak cashew nuts in a warm water. Slice onion vertically. Chop tomatoes. Now heat 1 teaspoon of ghee in kadai and fry onion till it turns to golden brown. Then add garlic and ginger fry it. Then add tomatoes and cook it. Let this get cool for some time. Fry 7-8 cashew separately in ghee. Now make a fine paste of all this fried ingredients. Now heat one tablespoon ghee in kadai. Add turmeric powder. Now add this paste and fry till the Ghee separates out from rest of the mixture. Then add khoya, chilli powder, garam masala, sugar and salt. Mix wel. Now add water little by little to get the desired consistency of the gravy. Boil it for five minutes. Then add soaked cashew nuts. Again cook it for 2-3 minutes. In the end add coconut milk , mix wel and switch off the flame. Thick creamy kaju curry is ready. Tastes good with roti, neer dosa or rice.

Hi Instead of adding soaked kaju at last stage, make paste of soaked kaju and add it for making puree and for adding kaju shallow fry it and add at end. Also instead of khoya u can add tablespoon of cream..thts my method how i do it :)
