This Thai snack known as 'Met Mamuang Himapran Tod' is deep fried cashew nuts which is accompanied with deep fried dried chillies.


Serves: 6 

  • 500g cashew nuts
  • 10 dried red chillies

  • 4 cups (1 litre) vegetable oil for deep-frying
  • 3-5 spring onions, thinly sliced

Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:10min 

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a heavy deep saucepan or large wok over medium heat. It will be ready when a wooden stick inserted will bubble at a nice pace; not too fast.
  2. Fry the cashew nuts for about five minutes until they are golden brown. Use a skimmer to take them out onto a paper towel lined plate.
  3. Fry the dried chillies for just 10 seconds or so, until they release their aroma. Don't let them burn.
  4. Put chillies and cashews in a bowl and toss with salt to taste. Sprinkle with spring onions.
