TENDER CASHEW STIR FRY / BIBBE UPKARI

Bibbe upkari is GSB konkani's favorite among all the upkaris / stirfry. Tender cashews are not available in all the seasons. When we don't get  tender cashews we just go for  dried Cashews. Only thing you have to do is soaking the cashews in enough water for at least 8 to 10 hours, for removing its outer skin. In any function or festival the Bibbe upkari graces the first place in the list of menu. Some prepare the stir fry with Tendle / Tendi. But I like it without any other vegetable. Here is the recipe, very simple  yet tasty.
