    WiGal's Note:

    This recipe comes from Forever Summer by Nigella Lawson. Serve with a bowlful of basmati rice and some flat bread. I also think you could make most of this ahead, if you do not stir the cashews in until you reheat the chicken curry mixture. I have decreased the water a bit from the original and still wonder if it is has too much liquid.

      Yum, Yum, Yum, I just loved this so nice, made exactly as the recipe said. My DD came for dinner and she went home with my print out and pinched my cashew nuts I had left really! the cheek of it he, he, he. seriously it was very nice DH & DD had there's with rice and I had cauliflower florets grated and steamed to be like rice I am low carbing. The next time I make it I might use a bit more chili as we do like it very hot but it was a very nice dinner. Thank you for posting.
