Chicken Curry with Cashews

I love creamy chicken curries, and this Chicken Curry with Cashews is one of my favorites. The creaminess comes from Greek yogurt as well as cashews, which are ground and added towards the end of cooking. The ground cashews provide a wonderful depth of flavor and give the curry a rich nuttiness.

The original recipe is from the January 2005 issue of Gourmet magazine. I’ve been making it since it first was released, but this is the first time I made a version of it for my kids.

I toned down the heat from the original recipe, though retained all the wonderful flavor. I also used boneless skinless chicken breasts, which I cube at the end. The resulting Chicken Curry with Cashews is so delicious and full of flavor; my kids absolutely love it and this dish is now a favorite of the whole family’s.

  1. Curry is so versatile and it can work with any ingredient. You have picked all the right ingredients and flavors for this recipe. The cashews are the perfect touch.

  2. I’m a total curry addict. We’ve been eating it in our non-Indian household for decades! I love all the flavors and textures in curry, including this one! I’m sure the cashews add a deliciously creamy crunch.
