As i was getting late to catch up to the deadline for the event MEC-Nuts hosted by Mythreyee, in the evening i googled for some quick recipes and i came across of this recipe from here and here which originally called on for a stove-top method,i thought of making it in a microwave and then immediately attacked the kitchen to prepare this.I modified the original recipe slightly by adding additional spices and made it compatible to my taste buds.Believe me the whole process was just finished in 5-6 mins.It was very easy and one can prepare in jiffy.
1 Cup Cashew nuts
1/2 tsp Red chilli powder
1/4 tsp Amchur powder(do not add much)
1/4 tsp Chaat masala
1/4 tsp salt(adjust acc to taste)
1 tbsp ghee
Heat ghee in a microwave safe bowl in microwave on high for 15-20 secs.
Drop in the cashew nuts and toss it until all the cashew nuts are coated well with the ghee and again microwave on high for 3-4 mins until it turns slight red in color.(Please stir in between and the time for roasting depends on the microwave power,so please check in between)
Meanwhile, mix all the dry masalas well in a small bowl.(Masala's can be adjusted according to your taste)
Sprinkle the masala over the roasted cashew nuts and toss it again until all the cashew nuts are well coated.spread it over a wide plate and cool it for a while.
Store in Airtight containers.
- Cashew nuts can be replaced by Badam(Almonds) as well but need to fry for long time.
- Use oil instead of ghee for a vegan version.
