Cashew Curry

Cashew curry is one of the dish I only had in a restaurant in Bangalore. I've never seen it in any other menu or in any kitchen. Of course everyone love cashews but when they go in a spiced gravy, it becomes a delectable dish.
Nuts contain Protein but they are high in fats too, so they can not be a primary source of daily protein. Occasionally you can enjoy them in a big amount. Cashews are the source of protein in this recipe.

Cashew - 2 1/2 cups
Onions - 1 1/2 big size
Ginger garlic paste - 2 tsp
Green chili - 2
Tomatoes - 6 medium
Poppy seeds - 2 tbsp
Condense milk - 1 tbsp
Salt - according to taste
Red chili powder -1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 2 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 3 tbsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Hing - 1/4 tsp
water - 1 cup

Roast the cashew in a pan adding little oil and keep aside. I've bought the cashew from Costco so I dint do this. Soak poppy seeds for 15 mins. Cut the onions in strips. Add oil in a pan. When the oil is hot add cumin seeds and hing. When the seeds splutter, add green chili and ginger garlic paste. After a minute add onions and cook them till well done.  Grind poppy seeds with some fry onions. Add tomato paste, salt, red chili powder and coriander powder,  cover and cook.  Add poppy seeds paste,condensed milk and fry for few mins. Switch off the stove and let the gravy cool for some time. Run the gravy through the mixer. Pour the gravy in the pan again. Add  water and let it boil. Add the roasted cashew and let it cook for 7 mins. Taste it and adjust the seasoning. Serve it with naan or chapati.
