I love the cashews and I love chicken as well. I combined both and made a wonderful starter. The cashew flavour mixed with the spices makes this recipe delicious. The more time you marinate this recipe it turns out the better. The outer layer gives a perfect cashew taste while the inner gives the taste of both cashew and tender chicken. I named it charminar cashew chicken as I am from Hyderabad and this is a means to show my love for this place. So please check out and hope you all like it.


Ingredients:

Boneless Chicken - 500 grams
Cashewnuts - 50 grams
Garam-masala powder - 1 teaspoon
Eggs - 2
Cornflour - 3 tablespoons
Red Chilli Powder - 2 teaspoons(increase/decrease as per taste)
Salt - As per taste
Red food color - 1 teaspoon
Oil - To fry

Preparation:

Soak the cashews in water for 1 hour and grind them into a paste.
Take a bowl and add cashew paste, garam-masala powder, beated eggs, cornflour, red chilli powder, salt, one teaspoon of oil and red food color. Add the boneless chicken pieces and marinate for 2-3 hours.


Take a pan and add oil to it. Take the chicken piece such that it is coated properly with the mixture on all sides.


Once the oil is heated add the chicken pieces one after the other.


Fry till they are cooked for about 5 mins. Keep checking to make sure its not burnt.
Once cooked, remove the chicken pieces and drain excess oil in napkin.
The delicious and rich in flavour cashew chicken is now ready to be served.


Serving Options:

Serve the cashew chicken as a starter with onions, lemon and chillies along with it. It can also be served as a snack with any sauce of your choice.
