Khatte Meethe Kaaju

This is a simple quick-fix recipe that works well for special occasions
such as festivals. Cashews are a source of good fats and rich in protein
and fibre!


  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 teaspoon ghee
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons jaggery
  • 1 tablespoon tamarind paste
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


  • Mix the ghee and salt with the cashews and bake them at 180˚C for 15 minutes. Let them cool.
  • In a pan, add the jaggery and tamarind paste with 3 tablespoons of water and heat it.
  • Mix it as it bubbles up and when it is a thick sauce, add the cashews to it. Once all the cashews are well coated, take them out on butter paper. Space them out so they don’t stick to each other.
  • Sprinkle some black pepper on them when they are still hot.
  • Serve once cool or store in a refrigerator in an airtight container.
