Ingredients - Paste

Preparation Method - Onion Cashew Paste

  1. Heat a pan add 1 cup water, roughly chopped onion, ginger, garlic, cardamom pods (I crush them before adding), sliced green chili and cashews.
  2. Simmer for 15-20 minutes on medium heat. Onions will be really soft by then and almost all water would have evaporated.
  3. Remove pan from heat and let the mixture cool down a bit.
  4. Grind to a smooth paste using your blender or food processor. You don’t need to add any water here since the mixture already has little water it in and will grind quite easily. Set aside.
