3 tablespoons ghee

20 to 25 fresh curry leaves (about 1/2 cup)

3 1/2 cups raw cashews

Kosher salt

1 teaspoon red chili powder

2 teaspoons chaat masala powder


  1. Melt the ghee in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the curry leaves and fry until crisp and no longer sizzling, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove to a plate with a slotted spoon, leaving the warm oil behind in the pan.
  2. Reduce the heat to low, then add the cashews to the ghee and cook, tossing frequently, until browned, 8 to 12 minutes.
  3. Return the curry leaves to the skillet along with a few pinches of salt, the chili powder and chaat masala; mix well. Transfer to a large bowl to cool. Store in an airtight container.
