I guarantee you this curry won't take you more than 30 minutes from start to end.

I was planning to make some naadan type chicken curry to go with my Ney pathil for breakfast. While I was in the mood for experimenting (yet I was starting to have strong symptoms of bad cold), so you know how badly I wanted to run from the kitchen. To top it my hubby was in a hurry and I had to make a curry super quick.

I had no time to think much so I did what I felt like and voila! It turned out so good Alhamdulilah!
This curry is made in a pressure cooker, yes! Thank god for pressure cookers. Always comes to the rescue when you are short on time. (I prefer to do it in a pot itself tough if I had the time), here I am using the cooker so that my onions are pressure cooked well in the masala and mashed well.

Rich and delicious cashew chicken curry can be accompanied with Ney pathil (oil fried rice pancakes), Ari dosa (rice crepe), ghee rice, appam, noolputtu/iddipyappam, chappathi, etc.

Guys! Please do give the recipe a try and let me know how you liked it! I am sure your family will love the curry😋👌
