Cashew Nut Curry
South Indian Cashew Curry
Now, I'm not entirely sure where this dish came from, but I have a feeling it was one of my mum's money-saving innovations back when we were children. That said I've heard since that other families cooked it too. Whatever its origins and history, it's fun to make and it really does taste great (although I'm the first to admit it sounds like a wartime favourite).
This is definitely a dish that becomes a talking point when you serve it. Reading their crestfallen faces, I once told my dinner guests that I'd forgotten to buy the meat for the curry and all I had was eggs. They were not happy... until they tried it.
Simply put, this is a fragrant tomato masala sauce cooked with some whole hard boiled eggs that is just beautiful. It's simple, rustic, high in protein, quick to make and is a great value meal that tastes fab.
