Cashew Butter is the secret ingredients to our delicious dish.


  • 1 cup cashews butter
  • 2 tablespoons oil, divided
  • 1 lb. chicken thighs or breasts
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 5 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 – 2-inch piece of ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 1 – 28-ounce can of crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • Sea salt, to taste

The spices:

  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ to 1 teaspoon chili powder

Prep: 5 Minutes
Cook: 13 Minutes


  • Heat half the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and brown on both sides, about 10 minutes total. You don’t need to cook the chicken all the way. Chop the chicken into bite-sized pieces.
  • While the chicken is browning, start cooking the curry. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion to the pan and cook until it is soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and ginger and let it cook for 5 minutes more. Add all the spices to a small bowl while the onions are cooking.
  • Add the spices to the onions and let them cook for a minute, stirring the whole time. Pour the tomatoes into the pan and scrape the bottom of the pan. Carefully transfer to your blender and blend on high until smooth.
  • Pour the curry back into the pan, add the cashew cream, the chopped chicken, 1/2 cup of water, and (if using) the brown sugar. Bring the curry to a boil then reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and let it cook for 10 minutes. Season to taste with sea salt.
