Cashew nuts

The cashew nut is a popular snack, and its rich flavor means that it is often eaten roasted, on its own, lightly salted or sugared, or covered in chocolate.
Cashews, unlike other oily tree nuts, contain starch to about 10% of their weight. This makes them more effective than other nuts in thickening water-based dishes such as soups, meat stews, and some Indian milk-based desserts.
Many southeast Asia and south Asian cuisines use cashews for this unusual characteristic, rather than other nuts. The shell of the cashew nut is toxic, which is why the cashew is shelled before it is sold to consumers.
