LOOKING FOR A RECIPE

Postby iamderekw on Fri Aug 13, 2010 4:53 am

I was at a Sri Lankan Buddhist Temple and after the service I had the most delicious dish ever! It was Cashew nuts in a sauce. The nuts were soft as if they had been stewed in the white creamy sauce. Does anyone know what I'm talking about and how to make it?

thank you
