It may sound odd and rather lavish to use cashews as a main ingredient in gravies, but because of the abundance of cashews in the region, cashew curry is a popular and common recipe in each malvani household!

Also do try other curries using cashew like Cashew, Mushroom and Makhana Curry or Drumstick and Cashew Curry .
