Cashews in and out make this dish the super awesome treat that it is. Perfect for cashew lovers, the Kaju Mutter Masala features crispy cashews and soft green peas in a creamy, tangy, masaledar gravy.
The gravy is quite rich, made of cashews, tomatoes, fresh cream and spice powders. While this recipe has a dash of ginger and garlic for added flavour, these two ingredients can be skipped to make a Jain-friendly version of this tasty dish.
