Indian Curry with Chinese Cabbage & Cashew Nuts

Indian Curry with Chinese Cabbage & Cashew Nuts

Both, me and my boyfriend, we love good Indian food. Here I would like to present you a well tested recipe from a german cookbook of my boyfriend. It is a spicy combination of turkey, chinese cabbage and cashew nuts. To get all ingredients you might have to visit a Chinatown in your city, but everything should be quite simple to get in Europe.

  • Dear cooks,

    Thank you for this wonderful recipe. I cooked it today with the girls whom I’m living with in a shared flat and we were just excited and overwhelmed how good it tasted. 🙂
    As we don’t eat so much meat, we replaced the turkey by tofu and it worked really well.
    We also used another kind of cabbage which suited the mixture too.
    So. Thanks again for publishing this recipe and for all the other lovely recipes. I do like the photos you take of them as well. 🙂

    All the best,


    • I’m really glad our recipe worked out for you girls! Bravo for the idea with tofu (I actually also prefer the vegetarian version, but my bf likes meat!).
      We are just back from our trip to Thailand where we took cooking classes so soon you will be able to find lots of new interesting recipes on the!
      Cheers, M.
