For the Curry Masala:
4. While you put the eggs to boil, take the cashews and grind them into a fine powder. Then, take half a cup of warm water and soak the ground cashews in it to make a fine paste and set aside. If you are using the coconut, then blend it into a smooth paste.
5. Next, pour a little oil in a deep fry pan, then add cumin, cloves, cardamom, bay leaf, and cinnamon stick and let them splutter.
6. Now add onions and salt and fry until they turn golden brown or caramelized.
7. Then add ginger-garlic paste and chopped green chili, and sauté till it leaves a nice fragrant.
8. Then, add tomatoes, and fry until it becomes mushy and separates oil from the gravy.
