Hi everyone! Here is a delicious dish I made last week!
Cashew Nut Curry (from Vegetarian Pleasures by Jeanne Lemlin, copyright 1986)
2 tablespoons oil
1 medium size onion, diced
1/2 red chili, seeded and minced, or 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. ground coriander
1/4 tsp. ground cardamom
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. minced gingerroot
1 cinnamon stick ( I sprinkled cinnamon powder in instead, fyi)
1/2 tsp. salt
8 oz. raw cashews
2 medium size potatoes, peeled and diced (1/2 inch dice)
2 cups coconut milk
1. Heat the oil in a medium-size saucepan over medium heat and add the onion, chili, turmeric, coriander, cardamom, garlic, gingerroot and cinnamon. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
2. Add all of the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer, partially covered, for 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender and the sauce is thickened. Serve alone or over rice.
