The cashew nut, a native of Brazil, is actually the seed of an apple-like fruit. Although the fruit is not widely consumed outside of Brazil, the cashew nut is a worldwide favorite when it comes to snacking. Cashew nuts are used in many Indian and Thai curry recipes, most notably shahi korma. With these curry-dusted cashews you can enjoy this classic flavor combination anywhere! Toss into tropical salads or liven up couscous. Cashews are also an excellent source of protein, fiber, and mono-unsaturated fats that may help to protect the heart.
