Snake guard curry


I have always said, my mom is my cooking guru. Growing up, I was fortunate to eat such amazing food prepared by mom. The best part about my mum's cooking is that it is very simple, minimal ingredients yet so delicious ..food that makes you feel so good. Today, I will share with you a delicious Snake guard curry that I learnt to make from my mom. This curry is sweet, a little spicy , oozing with flavors from coconut and cumin seeds. I have used cashews to act as the thickening agent but you can replace it by semolina / suji /rava.
