Cashew Chicken Stir fry | Kukskitchen

Cashew Chicken Stir fry  | Kukskitchen indo-chinese

Following on with the Indo-chinese theme, I present to yoou my version of a spicy cashew chicken. This recipe makes one fine chicken curry which has so much flavour it goes with anything at all. When I made it first, it became an instant hit with my dear D. I actually use the same marinade to start most of my chicken recipes. I have a batch marinating in my fridge while I type. Try this and I'm sure your loved ones will devour this recipe as much as mine do.

A few things before we start:

  • I use chicken thigh fillets. I feel they have more texture and flavour as opposed to breast pieces.
  • I marinate the chicken pieces and leave them over night in refrigerator.

An excited mum, a  responsible doctor , a friend's friend , a thankful daughter, a thankful sister and a passionate singer,  an enthusiastic cook, food writer and food photographer . That's me in a nut shell.

A doctor in my day job and a food writer and food photographer by night. I came in to cooking because of the people around me, be it the women in family who are amazing cooks or the men who luv to eat. My son is my best critic. :) Started cooking while I was at school, my first attempt being a sweetie, no surprise there for people who know me. I got interested in cooking more after marriage, as most girls do. My experiments with food blossomed after coming to the UK, where the grocery stores opened up a variety of foodie opportunities for my hungry tum.
