A slight variation to the "Bibbe Song" , is the "Bibbe theek Ambat" ie Cashew nuts in semi spicy coconut gravy, is for those who prefer less spice in their food.
This is a fantastic recipe, created by my mom for my dad who is not a big fan of spicy food. I serve this dish with puris or rice.
Cashew nuts - 1 cup
Grated coconut/desiccated coconut - 1 cup
Fried dry red chillies - 4 ( non spicy variety)
Onions finely chopped - 1
Tamarind - 1 small piece
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 tbsp
Grind fresh or desiccated coconut, along with red chilies, tamarind and 1 cup water to form a smooth paste and keep aside. Steam the cashew nuts in steamer or cooker for about 10 mins.
Now take a heavy bottomed vessel, put the coconut paste along with the cashews and start boiling on low heat.
Meanwhile, take a seasoning pan or small shallow pan, add oil and fry the finely chopped onions till golden brown. Now pour the onion seasoning over the boiling cashew and coconut gravy and bring to boil. Mix well.
Serve hot with puris or rice.
