Flavour

The taste of Kemiri Nuts is close to Macadamia or Cashew Nuts, which can be used as a substitute.

Culinary Use

Kemiri Nuts are used to thicken Indonesian and Malaysian Sauces.

Fresh Kemiri Nuts are slightly toxic, therefore they have to be cooked before they can be eaten safely. (Do not use fresh Kemiri Nuts in salads!)
