The following recipe is from the May 9 edition of our weekly recipe newsletter. To receive this newsletter in your inbox, sign up here!
Perhaps the most unusual curry in S.H. Fernando Jr.'s guide to Sri Lankan cuisine, Rice & Curry, is made of an ingredient more often found in a bowl of mixed nuts than in a steamy pot of coconut milk and chiles. Cashew Nut Curry is a wonderfully rich vegetarian curry, with soft, fatty cashews floating in creamy coconut milk spiced with curry leaves, lemongrass, coriander, and just enough chile heat.
What Worked: Never thought of nuts as a curry ingredient? Give it a shot; this is a fascinating dish.
What Didn't: All clear.
Suggested Tweaks: This recipe has us wondering what other nuts can be stirred into the curry equation.
