Cashew Chutney

As typed by Milo…20130617_205102

This is an inspiration from one of Vineet Bhatia’s Twist Of Taste programmes.
The recipe on television looked simple and the taste was intriguing. When I made the
dish it indeed turned out to be delicious.

Cooking time less than 10 minutes if you have all the ingredients in stock!

1) 2-3 handful de-skinned and broken cashew nuts. Recommended to use fresh ones as older/stale
ones tend to have a slight bitter after taste.
2) Carom (Ajwain) seeds 1.5 tea spoons
3) Mustard oil 2 table spoons
4) Asofetida 1 tea spoon
5) Jaggery 2 table spoon

Heat the pan until it starts smoking in a flat pan. Add the Carom (Ajwain) seeds and let them all
pop ensuring the aroma gets released.
Now add the Asofetida.

Add the jaggery. Let it stand on the flame until the jaggery cubes melt. Reduce the mixture by
a 10th (not to be read as to 10th). Add the cashew nuts at this time. Stir continuously as this
easily sticks to the bottom. Cook for the next 5 minutes to allow the cashew nuts to soften.

Serve this sweet nutty preparation as a replacement for pickle.
