Delicious restaurant style dragon chicken,with lots of cashew nuts,simple sauces and easy to put together recipe-all under 30 mins!

A new post after a while and this time I am sharing a recipe that is so close to my heart that too for some crazy reasons!
It's Dragon Chicken😊
Oh I have so fond memories attached to this dish - nothing with my family or mom's cooking! but I was so crazy for this dish once upon a time and I still am!
There was this new Indo-Chinese restaurant which had opened near my apartment and word of mouth was that they serve very delicious food there! I happened to visit the restaurant once and ordered few dishes, one among them was this Dragon Chicken, and that was the first time I tried it.And I must say it was totally different experience for me,I had tasted so called Dragon Chicken in many restaurant's later but this kind of preparation was making me visit them every week!
The staff of the restaurant started knowing my family so well as we used to go there every week 😂.My husband was a bit angry as I was not interested in trying another restaurant but somehow the restaurant stopped making much business and they closed down.
I was really disappointed with this,so tried this same dish in multiple other restaurants but somehow most of Indian restaurants serve it with a bit of South Indian touch to it ,which really makes me scream to them and say that every dish does not have "Curry Leaves",at-least not Indo-Chinese 😉

Since I could not get the same taste again anywhere,I even tried tracking that restaurant on google maps whether they opened any other outlet elsewhere but NO 😒

Finally I gave up on looking on restaurants and thought of making my own,but had to make some experiments before finally making the perfect one!

Made number of attempts to make this perfect(at-least I tried to remember the taste that made me crazy and tried to recreate it ), and finally this is what I achieved and it had completely satisfied my taste buds 😂
