Chicken, Homemade

Cashewnut Chicken Curry

Hi everyone, how are you all doing? I have always loved cashew nuts. Is my to go to snack when I need energy. I however try to eat it in moderation. I only eat about 1/4 cup. Yes that’s about it. Moderation is key. 

So over the week whilst thinking of what to make, cashewnut curry came to mind. I needed to come up with a recipe that will be a hit and most importantly not have loads and loads of ingredients as that tends to put people off! 

After jotting down basic ingredients that will pair up nicely with cashew, I made sure I got all the other ingredients to hand, 

Trust me you will love it. It’s subtle in taste, and very smooth and velvety in texture. Nothing overpowering at all. All the ingredients pop. 

Ok, Let me not keep you waiting, let’s get started shall we 🙂 


  • Chicken
  • 2 cups of unsalted cashew nut 
  • Greek yogurt 
  • Ginger
  • Garlic
  • Tuneric powder
  • Curry powder
  • Onions
  • Red chilli
  • Green chilli
  • Olive oil
  • Basmati Rice


  • 1 medium sized pot
  • Wooden spoon
  • Chopping Board
  • Blender

Prep time: 

Cooking time 

Total time:


First of all soak the cashew in some water for at least 2 hours
Let’s begin

Pot the soaked cashew in a blender, add a little water and blend into a smooth paste. Set aside 

Next chop the onions, and finely minced the garlic and ginger 

Finely chop the chilli’s

Heat u the pan and then add the oil. Let it heat up, but make sure it’s not smoking 

Now add the chopped onion and fry until transparent

Add the chicken. Keep turning the chicken until it changes from pink to cream. This process should take 6 minutes. (Please do not be in a hurry, let it change colour completely) 

Next add the garlic and ginger 

Add the chilli’s

Add the stock and let it cook on low heat for 10 minutes. 

Now add the yoghurt and mix well to dissolve the yoghurt. The yoghurt will tenderise and make the chicken moist. Which is a very good thing especially for this recipe. (So do not skip this step) cook for 4 minutes 

Add the tumeric

Finally Add the cashew paste. Stir gently and let it simmer on low heat for 6 minutes. 

After 6 minutes, take it off the heat 

Let it rest for a few minutes before serving. (You know I will always say this, lol) 

Its ready to be served! 


That’s it from me today

I’ll see you all in my next post 

Love Duchess O
