Stir-Fried Chicken with Cashews & Peppers


by: Aarthi

I love to cook with pepper specially because they give a lovely crunch and also make dishes look colourful..I always want my food to be colourful...I know everyone likes their food colourful...But I am crazy about it... My next favorite thing is Cashews..I eat them a.........Well!! You know me....Ha Ha... I will eat that all day..But right now I have stayed away from them a little because as my love for cashews grow,it reflects in my waistline...But there are days when I eat tons and tons of them.. Ok Now coming to cooking with cashews...I mostly put cashews in sweets and payasams...Mainly my little sister will search for cashews in payasam always... In our place there is a restaurant,they serve a delicious chicken dish in which they add lots of cashews..That one is their signature dish too...I had it recently and I am in love with it from that second onwards... So I thought of combining chicken and cashew in a dish that should be so simple like a stir fry which should only take 15 mins to cook...And I succeeded in that.. And I am delivering that to you...Check it...
