My daughter loves roasted cashews. But what we get at bakeries is full of chilly powder and it is very hot. So to make a plain salted version of those roasted cashewnuts, I tried this at home. Instead of deep frying the nuts, I opted for a more healthier method – I baked them in oven. It took just a tsp of oil to get these crispy crunchy cashew nuts and Sruti liked it so much.
It is quite easy to prepare this treat for kids. Buy the whole cashew nuts. You can also try it with the halved nuts. In a large plate, take the cashew nuts. Add a tsp of oil and salt and mix well. Preheat oven to 200C. Spread the cashew on a baking tray and bake it in oven. Keep on stirring the nuts for even roasting. When they are golden, remove from oven and allow it to cool. They may be softer to bite when hot but once cool, they will become crispy. Store in air tight jar and give your kid a delicious treat once in a while.
To make a spicier version, add a tsp of red chilly powder and a pinch of chaat masala along with salt and mix. Bake as mentioned above. Even you can have a guilt free treat with these spicy cashew nuts..
