Cashew Chicken

Cashew Chicken is a semi dry dish which can be served with fried rice, rice or as an appetizer.
The tender chicken with crunchy cashews and green peppers will give this dish a distinct taste. 
I tasted cashew chicken in several Indian restaurants and Chinese restaurants but it took me couple of trials to get the ingredients and taste that everyone enjoyed. So, here is the recipe...

Preparation Time: 5 minutes 
Cook Time: 20 minutes 
Serves: 3-4

Skinless and boneless chicken: 750gms
Onion : 1 large cubed
Green Pepper/Capsicum: 1 large cubed
Garlic: 4 cloves minced
Cashews : 1/2 cup
Soy sauce: 1 tablespoon 
Ground pepper: 1 teaspoon 
Sugar : 1/2 teaspoon 
Chili garlic paste: 1 tablespoon 
Salt to taste 
Cilantro/coriander leaves: For garnish 


Heat oil in a wok or a wide pan and add chicken, salt and pepper. Sauté on high heat for 8-10 minutes until the chicken is tender and cooked completely.
Add cashews and sauté for 1 minute. Add onions, garlic and green peppers and sauté for 3 minutes. Add chili garlic paste, soy sauce and sugar. Mix well and sauté for 1 minute. Add cilantro, mix well and turn off the stove.
Serve hot with fried rice, white rice or as an appetizer.
