KAJU MASALA

This is my hubby's latest trial recipe which was just superhit. Whenever we go to restaurants, he order kaju masala for himself with onion kulcha or butter naan. Indeed its a nice combo right? Now coming back with the point, the thing which made me surprise was he did this soon after he came from office and within 15 to 20 min maximum he prepared this recipe. Quantity was less but for 3 people its more than enough when therez salad too on its side with hot hot chappati. Therez only 1 demerit and ie he adds extra butter and ghee to his preparation which tastes fab but on other side when u think of health wise, its extra extra cholestrolly oily food. But he convince me saying once in a while its ok having such delicious, tasty food :) hehehehe. To satisfy our taste buds once in a while tho chaltha hai :)) This recipe has become one of our fav :)

So lets dig into this recipe..
