First, add 2 cups of water and half a lime to a pot and bring to a boil.
Add the raw cashews to a dish to soak. Allow it too soak for at least 30 minutes
Add the turkey to a bowl and pour salt and squeeze lime juice on to the meat.
Rub the lime on the drumsticks. This will help remove the raw smell and taste from the meat.
Remove the skin.
When all the skin has been removed, rinse the meat 2-3 times. Remove all the slimy bits. After the last rinse, pour the boiling lime water onto the meat.
Allow the meat to steep in the hot water for 5-10 minutes. This will allow the last few slimy bits to be removed.
Remove the turkey from the hot water to prepare to season the meat.
Add thyme, juice of 1 lime to the meat. Add tomato paste, epis, seasoning, hot pepper, salt, cloves and oil to the meat.
Mix in all the seasoning into the meat and allow it to marinate.
Now, it’s ready to cook.
Start with seasoned meat. Check out how to prepare and season the chicken here.
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Bring the meat to a simmer. When most of the water is almost finished, add ½ cup of water and bring to a boil. This should take 15-20 minutes.
While the turkey is boiling, drain the cashews and add them to a pot with 3-4 cups of water and some oil. Allow it to simmer, checking occasionally to see if the cashews are cooked. You will know the cashews will be cooked when they break easily.
After 15-20 minutes, when the water has boiled down a quite a bit and the turkey is cooked, bake the meat for 20-25 minutes.
While the meat is in the oven, start on the meat sauce.
Fry tomato paste in oil until it turns into a dark red color.
Add onion, chopped green pepper, seasoning and salt.
When the onion and pepper have softened, add the leftover boiled meat water to the fried mixture.
Bring the mixture to a boil.
After a 2-3 minute boil, add the cashews along with the simmer water.
When the turkey has taken some beautiful color, add the meat to the sauce.
Add chopped onion to the meat sauce.
Let the sauce simmer with the chicken in it for at least 5 minutes before serving.
