These are very easy to make. Ken’s version has 300ml ground nut oil so the cashews are semi deep fried, we’ve always stir fried with just a small amount of oil. Experiment with different levels of spices to suit you. I’ve made some to take as pre dinner nibbles at a friends house tonight.
- 2 tbsp groundnut oil
- 200g raw cashews
- 1 tsp ground sea salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/4 tsp 5-spice powder
- Heat oil in a wok or a heavy base frying pan.
- Fry cashews in oil for about 2 minutes or until starting to turn brown. Keep them moving with a bamboo spatula.
- Put a sheet kitchen towel on a plate and tip cashews onto plate to soak up excess oil.
- Put cashews into a bowl, add salt and spices and make sure cashews get covered in it.
