  1. Oh thanks for recipe todays my MOM dads Aniversary and i suprised them by making KAJU CURRY.

    Regards,

  2. HI Hema – I tried your recipe today (with an exception. I did not add khowa as it was not in hand today).
    The curry tasted sour thought over all it was good. I guess that was due to the tomatoes. Could you advise on how to remove the sourness when I make it next time?

    • Monica – Try to add just one Tomato (instead of two) if you do not have Khoa at hand. That might reduce the sour taste in the Kaju Curry. Or else may be you can have more Cashews added to the gravy while grinding the ingredients for the gravy. Hope this helps.
