2. Slice the onion, chop the tomato, mince the garlic cloves and cut the ginger in small slices.

3. Cut the cottage cheese into small blocks and sauté it in a pan with a little oil.

4. Deep fry the cashew nuts to make them look brown and crisp.

5. In a deep bottom round pan, put some oil and fry the onions, garlic, ginger and the tomato.

6. Add coriander powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder, chilli powder, and keep sautéing until the oil starts coming out from the mixture.

8. Cover and cook for a few minutes.

9. Add the nutmeg powder, cardamom powder and cinnamon powder to the vegetables and cover it for a minute.
