These curried cashews are impossibly addictive--every time we made them in the Test Kitchen they disappeared in a flash. If you use salted cashews, omit the added salt.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 250 degrees F.

  • Whisk lemon juice, curry powder and salt in a large bowl. Add cashews; toss to coat. Divide between 2 large rimmed baking sheets; spread in an even layer.

  • Bake, stirring every 15 minutes, until dry, about 45 minutes. Let cool completely. Store in an airtight container.


Make Ahead Tip: Store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.

Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.

Yuck! This recipe is inedible - way too much salt! To avoid throwing out the whole batch I had to add all kinds of sweetener to correct the flavor Read More

My family and friends love these. If you use table salt cut the amount by half or they will be too salty. We make this recipe with almonds too and it's really tasty. Read More

Irresistible!!! These cashews were eaten for breakfast lunch dinner snack and all times in between. Completely delicious and easy. Once they were done I used the salt/curry mix at the bottom of the container to put over eggs...yummy! Highly recommend for an easy party and healthy snack. Pros: Easy delicious Cons: one recipe is not enough Read More

I was looking for a curried cashews recipe that didn t use butter like a previous recipe. I only added a bit of cayenne powder to the recipe and no salt; otherwise it was the same. Very delicious and similar to cashews that I bought from the local food coop. Read More
