Caution: So many strawberries recipes coming soon. 😀

It’s easy, healthy, packed with almost everyone’s favorite nut ‘Cashewnut’. And you don’t need any other ingredients for the base of this curry — only cashews are needed to create the magic.

This is one of my favorite curries, and I make sure to eat this at a local restaurant at least once during my every visit to India. I just love this. Or maybe I should say this is one of such curries which I can eat at any day of the year. Yes, you can say that I am quite obsessed with this curry. But guys, try this curry once and you’ll know why am I so obsessed with this.

There are two versions of this Kaju masala curry. Tomato based red gravy or white khoya based gravy. Today I am sharing the one which is made with tomato based gravy.

In this curry, roasted cashews are slowly cooked in a spicy, creamy and silky onion tomato based gravy. Due to cashews, this curry is quite heavy and rich, thus this is usually made for celebrations and special occasions. The rich and smooth texture comes from ground cashews + cashew cream and ghee. So simple and fast, and so amazingly flavorsome.

Some important tips for making this Shahi Kaju Curry:
To get the restaurant style taste, I added kitchen king masala to the sauce. Yes, this masala creates an enormous difference.
And the second thing which shines the flavor is the Kasuri Methi.
I used whole cashews for this recipe, but you can also use broken cashews.
To make it shahi, I am using roasted cashews, but you can also add cashews without roasting them.
To give it a rich texture, I added a teaspoon of ghee at the end, but that is completely optional. But if you cannot compromise on taste then adding roasted cashews and ghee is a good idea.

You can simply serve this curry with steamed rice, naan, tandoori roti, paratha, chapati or any other flatbread of your taste.
