Tomato Cashew Nut Masala is one tasty dish and tasted it from one hotel which is located in Bangalore. I used it as the side dish with Chapati in the evening. Its taste was really amazing so I decided to make it from home. But here I made little bit changes from that so its taste also is little bit different. They have added fresh Coriander Leaves but here I used Curry Leaves so it became as Kerala Style dish. But Coriander Leaves can give another flavour and freshness. This is spicy less and thick gravy masala curry. It also has the special flavour of Cashew Nut and creamy effects. It is an excellent combination with Chapati and Bread. This is completely vegetarian dish and it can make very easily t home. I like Tomato dishes very much and all dishes of this vegetable are really good and tasty. Tomato can be used as the combination with Chicken, Beef and Fish. This masala dish has the mixed taste of sour and spice and also has the flavour of masala. This dish is entirely different from other Tomato dish.
