The Raw Cashew Nuts have a mild, buttery flavour that can easily be overpowered by other foods. The light, natural taste of the cashew nut is enhanced when it is roasted. Roasting cashews brings out the sweet, buttery flavour of the nut, especially when eaten warm. Cashews are commonly used in South Asian cuisine, whole for garnishing sweets or curries, or ground into a paste that forms a base of sauces for curries (e.g., korma), or some sweets (e.g., kaju barfi). Raw Cashew Nuts are very useful.
