What is Kaju Malawi?
Kaju or Kadju is the local word for Cashew. With many of Indians and Sri Lankans being vegan or vegetarian, every conceivable vegetable, grain, pulse and nut has been put to work in creating amazing combinations of flavour, fragrance and texture. This is key to the success of their healthy, fulfilling diet.
Cashew nuts are the seed of the Cajew apple fruit grown abundantly in South Asia. They have a soft, creamy texture and are perfect eaten raw, roasted or used within dishes as garnishes or ground into pastes to lend creaminess and flavour.
Cashew curry uses the whole nut to create a meaty texture with a nutty flavour. The cashew curry sauce is mild and fragrant from the coconut milk. It's a hearty, healthy curry that pairs perfectly with Indian breads or rice. It's often eaten on its own or as part of a larger banana leaf thali platter.
