Malaiwale Aloo with Kaju / Creamy Potatoes with Cashewnuts

As usual whenever I visit a restaurant, first look at the menu card and browse through it thoroughly before ordering.  I seen this dish on the menu card and instantly decided, to order this dish.  I loved it.  Came home and try to replicate this dish, it turned out awesome.   

This is a creamy, rich, delicious crispy fried aloo made with cashewnuts . It is a restaurant style dish. This dish is so yummy that we loved it and now it is regularly made at my place.
