Spicy Thai Chicken in Cashew nuts

Tasted this first at Krua Thai and later at Siam, finding out later that they have the same owner. 🙂 That’s business, same taste in different packaging. I made my own for Peter’s house warming and the folks love it!
I love it too. This is spicy and sweet. If you are adventurous with spices, you will like this.

On crushed spices, I used a garlic crusher gadget that crushes garlic and others so finely.
