Cashew nuts are kidney shaped nuts having a sweet taste. Can be taken as it is or roasted. For roasting, spread cashew nuts on a baking sheet and place in a preheated oven to 350 deg Fahrenheit and bake for about 6 to 7 minutes turning occasionally. Remove from oven, cool and store in a air tight container. These are also used in candies, cakes, sweets and rich curries or rice preparation.
