Cashew Murukku Recipe

Cashew Murukku is the one of best murukku recipes that I tried this year.Ever since I saw this cashew murukku recipe in Nithis space, I've been wanting to try and glad that I tried this year atleast.This murukku is quite addictive and has a melt in the mouth texture with the flavour from cashews that anyone will easily fall for it.Even Mittu who is not fond of eating cashews as such loved this murukku.
