Kaju curry Recipe. Kaju curry or cashew curry is rich Indian curry for party menu or special occasions. Vegan and and vegetarian recipe. Tastes best with Paratha or Naan.
Kaju curry is rich spicy Indian curry that is quick and easy to cook but still taste like one of the best curries. There are 2-3 versions of Kaju curry. One is North Indian style Kaju curry that I am sharing in the recipe. Second version is almost similar but in that version of curry roasted cashew are used instead of soaked ones which I have used in this recipe.
Third version is completely different in taste profile and the curry is Goan style Cashew curry that is made using special spice blend from Goan cuisine.
Coming back to this North Indian style Kaju curry, I have used soaked cashew nuts which are soaked in salted water for few hours. It is strongly recommended to soak the cashews in salted water so that cashew are not bland when you cook them with gravy.
I have tried cashew curry which was made with roasted cashew/kaju but each time I found that gravy was good but when eating cashews in gravy the taste was almost bland. I feel even if you are making curry with roasted cashew simmer the curry for extra 20 minutes and add little extra water so that cashew/kaju can soak some flavour and salt from the red gravy.
This is typical Dhaba style Kaju curry recipe except I added lesser oil and skipped butter and richness of the gravy comes from cashew paste that I added to finish the kaju curry. It helps to cut the oily after taste that comes after eating a super rich oily curries that are served in dhaba.
Since this is not a curry that I cook in everyday meals so to make it even more tasty I usually serve it with Paratha or Naan. If you are looking for more rich Indian curries, you can try this paneer kofta curry, Malai Soya Chaap curry or most favorite curry of mine Matar Paneer.
So next time if you are searching a vegetarian curry recipe for party that is not paneer you can try this cashew curry recipe.
