We use to relish Kajuchi usal in Girgaon. There were 2-3 restaurants on girgaon road where we use to get Cashew Usal.
I am not aware of the recipe of Kajuchi usal and hence I tried to make it in the manner of "Dalimbi usal". This too tastes good. But I am still in search of the authentic Kajuchi Usal recipe.
1 cup raw cashews (Ole Kaju)
1/4 cup grated coconut
1/2 inch jaggrey
2-3 tbspn oil
1 tspn of mustard seeds & cumin seeds
1/4 tspn turmeric powder
1/4 tspn red chilly powder
A pinch of asafoetida
Salt to taste
Corriander for garnishing
Soak raw cashews in hot water for 15-20 min.
Now remove the skin of cashews
Heat oil in a pan
Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, turmeric powder, asafoetida to it.
Now add coconut, raw cashews and water to it.
Cover it with lid and let it cook for 5-6 minutes
After cooking add jaggrey, red chilly powder and salt to it.
Mix it well and cook it again for 3-4 minutes
Garnish it with corriander
Note : Since cashews are delicate, handle carefully.
