Recipe For Chicken Cashew Curry

It is not often that I will do a post about a specific product, unless I am reviewing it. However, Le Creuset gave me this NoMU rub when I purchased an item from them, as well as a recipe card to go with the rub.

Nomu Indian Rub for my Chicken Cashew Curry

Nomu Indian Rub

I would not ordinarily buy a rub, as I have a spice drawer full of all lovely things, but this is one spice rub I am going to use over and over again. It has a great balance of flavours. Sadly, this is the second recipe I have followed from the series that has not worked out 100%. It may be to do with the fact that I altered this one slightly to suit my ingredients, or it may have to do with the fact that I don’t have a regular oven. What I can tell you is the flavours are great, and Dave and I used the left over sauce for another dish, on another night.
