Nutty Chicken

I am sitting infront of my laptop and thinking what to write?? I am not getting the flow of words. I am not yet into the blogging mode. Hope things will get improved soon. Weekends are my cooking day. After started working , I usually cook up a storm during weekends and stock up in my refrigerator. I started preparing a chicken dish which can be paired well with Parathas /Rotis. I like adding cashew paste to curries. It gives a rich creamy taste to the dish. Hope you all will like it.

  21. Hi Sneha, Thank you visiting my blog.. My mom used to prepare chicken like this but i hardly use cashews in my cooking these days except for festive cooking. This sounds yummy, so maybe i should give it a try. Do we not need any water at all when cooking this chicken?
    And just curious, how different is cooking in India after a year in America? do you still bake in bangalore?

  22. The curry looks delicious... Wonderful color...Love the addition of cashews to it.. Makes it more tempting.. ;-) ;-)
