Coriander Cashew Chicken

Here is the chicken recipe that Amma recently made. We made it first time for the party and everybody liked it. However Hubby dear felt he needed little more spice, but of course spice is something you can increase as you wish. I simply had to go by what others had to say on this dish. And it's not your typical dry dish. You can make this as a side dish for rotis as well.

The rains in Madras is making us all go nostalgic. It's been years since it rained during this time. It's almost like I am back during my school days, when it used to rain the whole of July and August. Let's hope it continues and our water problem gets solved!

Now to the recipe, with a hectic day at work, I am really off to rest. Catch you next for the weekend post.
