Both tendli and cashewnuts are favourites along the south-western coastal regions of india, especially in mangalore. Tendli cashewnut is an interesting subzi that combines both. Simply flavoured with just a seasoning of mustard seeds and red chillies, this recipe ensures that all the focus is on the tender veggie.
