“We fell in love with something very similar to this on a recent trip to Thailand. This is husband Russ's very good attempt at making them at home. We were able to buy the fried garlic and fried shallots at a local Asian supermarket. Very, very morish! Our cashews weren't salted but we used around half a teaspoon, so salt is to taste.”
1 cashews

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat, add in the shredded lime leaves and chilli flakes and fry just until the leaves change colour.
  2. Remove from the heat and drain off any oil you can. Add the cashews to the pan and stir over a low heat for a minute or so.
  3. Remove from the heat and add the shallots, garlic and salt to taste. Try to not eat the lot!
