Today, I am sharing a savory recipe using Cashews. Roasted cashews are easily available in the market and online. But roasting it on your own helps to add perfect toppings to your taste. Another advantage is, it is cost efficient.

I am adding only salt and pepper. Since, my husband likes traditional toppings for the nuts. You could add more spices like garam masala , chilli powder , black salt , curry leaves powder as per your taste. Also I like to add little ghee for roasting which makes it more delicious. You can add any oil in place of ghee. Adding little oil while roasting helps the salt and pepper to stick to the nuts.
