We all love salted cashews and i made it sure to buy those tiny beautiful tins in the plane whenever we traveled. I tried making it in the microwave with some butter and salt but the result was not that satisfying and then one day my friend Kanchan told me how she makes it.
I am so so thankful to her for this procedure. I make one batch almost every week now and the best thing!!, my toddler loves it too. I halve the cashews and give it to her, else it can be a choking hazard.
What do we need??
Salt: 500gms (yes, you read that right !!!)
Sea salt (according to taste, optional)
Heat the half kg salt in a wok / kadai and add cashews to it. Put the flame on low and Keep stirring very carefully as the heated up salt can be very dangerous. After 5-8 minutes, the cashews will start turning slight pink. At this point you can take a big strainer and separate the cashews from the salt. Sprinkle ground sea salt while still hot. Let it cool down and munch on it. Tastes heavenly.
Note: The salt used here can be used multiple times and later can be used for baking cooker cakes.
