Roasted Cashews ... spiced with just salt and pepper

My kids love roasted cashews. We have all been a fan of the ones we get from Mangalore. When my dad was in mangalore it was so much fun to go there for every vacation. Everytime on the way back home  dad would buy these roasted cashews for us without fail. Not only this but also other dry fruits. There is this store in Mangalore called Phalguni Achal where we get really good dry fruits. We have been in love with them

Now after my dad shifted from Mangalore we dont get to eat roasted cashews with the same taste. My elder one was talking to me in the morning about this as how he misses mangalore, city centre, Pabbas and these roasted cashews. I thought I would buy some for him and got it from a nearby store. He ate but said it did not mark up to the taste. I understood that he like nice big beautifully shaped cashews that taste just wonderful without a scope of bitterness anywhere

I have batch of fresh nuts lying in the fridge. Dad made sure to stock it up for me that could last a year. I pulled out a pack and seasoned it a little. Niks loved it to the core. Both the kids enjoyed and then Niks put a few in a box and saved it for the next day too

This is what u'll need....

Cashews - 1/2 cup
Ghee - 1 tspn
Pepper to taste
Salt to taste

Here is the stir.... 
  • Heat a tsp of ghee in a flat pan
  • Measure half a cup of whole cashews
  • Put the cashews into the ghee in the pan
  • Fry them on very low flame stirring every few seconds to ensure even browning and cooking

                                • Using ghee gives an additional flavour but if you dont like you can use plain oil instead
