Kaju Maluwa (Cashew Nut Curry)

This is a very famous dish in Sri Lanka, specially in occasions like weddings & arms-giving ceremonies.
I love cashew nut curry very much and have been tried it for so many times.
so I decided to share the recipe with you also who love The Kaju Maluwa just like me.
Hope you will like this recipe.
Try it by your self....
Good Luck!!! :-)

200g cashew nuts
1 medium onion – sliced
3 – 4 tablespoons garlic – finely chopped
2 tablespoons ginger – finely chopped
3 tablespoons black pepper powder
2 – 3 tablespoons Sri Lankan roasted curry powder
½ teaspoon turmeric
2 cups coconut milk
4 – 5 tablespoons oil
5 – 6 curry leaves
Salt to taste

Wash the cashew nuts and soak it for overnight.
Then drain the water and place it in a medium size bowl.
Now mix all the spices with cashews (black pepper, turmeric, salt, Sri Lankan roasted curry powder) and keep it aside.
Heat the oil in a medium saucepan, in medium heat.
Then add curry leaves, chopped garlic & ginger, and fry it for 1 minute, then add onions and fry it nearly 5 minutes.
When onions are ready, add the cashew mixture, and mix it well with onions.
Keep it on heat nearly 5- 10 minutes.
Then add coconut milk and cook it till you get little bit gravy.
Taste for salt.

You can have cashew nut curry with any kind of rice, noodles or any dish you like.

1. If you forget or you don’t like to soak the cashews overnight, just boil it with water, till cashews get soft.
2. If you are using a spoon to stir the curry, remember not to break the cashews. OR just shake the saucepan when you want to stir the curry.
