Egg kaju masala

I adapted this recipe from a FB food group posted by one of my friend Sandhya Nayak Kamath.I have  tried this dish several times and  since the taste is awesome I thought of sharing it here today.The original name of the dish  was egg butter masala but since Cashewnut paste is added and it enhances the taste I renamed it as Egg kaju masala.Kaju means Cashewnuts.This dish goes well with roti or rice.I had some leftover Egg fried rice to accompany this dish, so it was totally an eggy day today at our place.

Eggs-10,boiled and halved
Chilly powder-1 tsp
Turmeric powder-1/4 tsp
Coriander powder-1 tsp

Cashews-1/4 cup
Milk-to soak cashews, approx less than ¼ cup
Cinnamon-1″ piece
