Cashew Tomato Gravy | Fried Cashews in thick Tomato Gravy | Lunch Box Recipes

For the second day it's the gravy that was served for the Cauliflower Biryani. Well technically I should have posted it along with the rice, but didn't have the heart not making this a star dish! The first time Amma made this gravy, she had actually made with Paneer and along with a Veg biryani and the combination was a hit. Imagine I didn't click pictures nor take the recipe from her until very late.

When I asked her for the recipe, saying that Paneer was awesome, she was saying it's quite simple to assemble. I never came around making the Paneer cashew tomato gravy, though finally settled with a plain cashew fried in tomato sauce. When you are confused on what to make for the biryani, especially when you are planning a feast this will surely fit the bill.

The days are cold in the morning, it's very chill when you get out at 6 in the morning. I love those moments venturing out, however I love sleep in too. Life surely offers you such complicated things to decide!..:)

Let's enjoy this gravy for now.
