Emirates treats fliers with Indian cashew nuts

Bengaluru: Marking the World Cashew Day, leading Gulf-based carrier Emirates on Saturday treated its fliers with tasty and munchy Indian cashews onboard its passenger jets, an official said. "We have served the delicious and roasted India cashew nuts to our guests on international and regional flights as a snack and an ingredient in a variety of our cuisine," said the Dubai-based airline in a statement. Emirates said India, a cashew production heavyweight, is a perfect match to the airline as the produce piggybacks on its fleet to 160 destinations in 86 countries. According to the airline, United Arab Emirates (UAE), imports 21 per cent of India's total annual cashew kernel exports of 80,000 tonnes, valued at $900 million, emerging the largest importer. The airline extensively peppers the curved nut produced by an evergreen tree in its menu, serving and garnishing in its signature delicacies such as butter chicken, khanu badam diya macher, pongal, shahi paneer, murg korma and others.
