* Take tomato, green chilly, ginger and cashews to make a fine paste.

* Preheat pan on a flame. Add some oil to it. When oil is slightly warm, add cashews, stir constantly and roast for a while until they brown.

* Now add cumin seeds in oil and saute for a while. After sauteing cumin seeds, add asafoetida, turmeric powder, whole garam masala. Peel brown cardamom and take its seeds. Saute for a while. Now add tomato-cashew-green chilly-ginger paste and stir constantly until oil starts separating from the masala. Add red chilly powder as well.

* Add cream to this roasted masala. Now add 1/2 cup water to the gravy. Keep the gravy dense or thin as per your preference, so add water accordingly. Now cook again until the gravy starts simmering. Add some green coriander as well.

* When gravy starts simmering, add salt and roasted cashews into it. Cover and cook on low flame for 3 to 4 minutes, so that cashews absorb spices nicely.

* Sabzi is ready, turn off the flame. Take out the sabzi in a bowl. Garnish with some coriander sprigs. Serve steaming hot kaju korma sabzi with chapati, naan or rice and relish eating.
