Roasted Cashews

Roasted Cashews
Hmm...Comfort food...Any food which makes us feel good and gives a sense of wellbeing is comfort food. It is food which is simple to prepare and is typically associated with childhood or home cooking memories. My comfort food list is pretty long with cheese and macaroni, potato soup, chocolate, cake, cashews and a lot more....

Today I made roasted cashews, a very simple snack, but very comforting. And this is my entry for From My Rasoi blog event hosted by Revathi of En Ulagam.

Roasted Cashews bring back memories of my home....Vivid, happy memories.... My mom used to make this on Sundays when everyone was at home... By the time, the cashews came out from the kitchen to the dining table, my little sister would have gobbled down most of it! :-)
Ah! Those funny moments.....Can revel in them all day long... Well, lets get back to work..


Cashewnuts - Whole or spilt - 1 cup
Ghee - 1 teaspoon
Salt - As per taste
Chilli Powder - 1 teaspoon
Ground Black Pepper - 1/4 teaspoon

Fry cashewnuts in ghee over a low flame till they are golden in color. Take care not to burn the cashewnuts. Add salt, chilli powder and ground black pepper and fry the nuts for a minute. Remove from heat.

Happy Snacking.

That is indeed a classic example of comfort food. Whatever the book says, comfort food is food that brings back memories as the ones you have mentioned.

The cashews looks very crispy...

Every week I post a link to seven recipes that I've found on other blogs that I think are interesting or unique. I call it Recipe Carousel because the idea is to spread good recipes around and around and around . . .

This week the theme is nuts and I have included a photo and link to your recipe

I hope this is OK with you, but if it's a problem please let me know.
