The Most Versatile Seeds & Nuts For Your Indian Recipes At Chandra Foods

Whether it’s to bulk dishes up or simply add flavour, nuts play a big role in creating meals. One thing about nuts is that we all have a pretty clearly defined relationship with them: we either love to hate them. In some cases, people are actually allergic to them. When it comes to popular Indian dishes, nuts again play a big part. So, which nuts are use in Indian cooking? Let’s take a look…


Almonds are a great source of vitamin E and an easy way to add greater texture and depth to a whole range of Indian dishes. They’re often found in delicious biryanis and mouth-watering kormas. In addition to this, they’re also a great source of magnesium and potassium whilst adding a delicate touch of flavour.

Cashews are mostly known for being a tasty snack on their own, but they’re actually really common in Indian cuisine. This low-fat nut is also known for its capability of lowering cholesterol. Its biggest success? Playing a major role in the UK’s favourite curry – the chicken korma! They’re also good for garnishing all kinds of other curries as well.
