Thai spicy cashew

i must warn you, its pretty addictive.

Be warned. This recipe is not for the faint of heart. the chiles are HOT. so please adjust this to your own comfort level. Thai recipes are based upon individual taste, and some people may prefer 1 chile only, maybe only 1/2 chile. personally I like it hot so.. feel free to adjust to your personl comfort zone. enjoy!

  • 3 spring onions, sliced
  • 2-3 red thai chiles, sliced (to taste)

heat the oil over medium heat. Once heated, add cashews and fry until golden. Remove and drain cashews. Toss the cashews with the spring onion, chile and salt. Serve, ideally with a cold beverage, or two!
