The Valentines Day dinner: Steak, wine and a little bit of love.

Valentine’s Day is always a fine dining restaurant for us. There’s a certain appeal about restaurant food that you can’t argue. The plating, the ambience, the cut of meat, the rich sauces; it’s the whole package. Replicating this restaurant quality food at home is something I obsess. I go great leng

Roasted Spicy Garlic Cashew nuts

Sometime back when I was roomates with Deepthi, she used to treat us with Delinut Cashews. It was downright amazing. Think about it like the different pringles flavors, but for cashews. We’d finish half a kilo in a night trading office stories. These cashews were hard to get by. Deepthi got it from her hometown during her occasional visits. Fast forward 10 years and getting back home from a long day at work and then munching on something became a thing for us. Usually its Pringles and or some Indian snack like “mixture” that goes with tea. We binge on it catching up on the day. And as expected this got too unhealthy. That when I became nostalgic about the Delinut cashews. So I got me myself two pound of cashews. Roasted and sautéed the heaven out of it. All complete with the right amount of spices and garlic. You’ll love this recipe. We have it right on top of our refrigerator and they run out in a night. Thank me later.
