Cook Time
No cooking involved
  • 1/2 cup raw cashew nuts, soaked in about 1 cup of water for about half an hour
  • 1 medium onion, chopped coarsely
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1-inch piece unpeeled ginger
  • 1 or more green chilies, seeded (optional)
  • 1 tsp poppy seeds (optional)
  • Drain the cashews. Place cashews in a blender and grind them into a fairly smooth paste. Add a little water if needed to make cashews into a paste.
  • Add onion, garlic, ginger, chillies and poppy seeds (if using) in a food processor or blender. Process into a coarse paste or mince them.

Tip: This can be kept ready in the freezer for quick meals. Cashew paste and the paste with all the other ingredients can also be stored separately and mixed as desired.
