1 ½ Tbs Oil
-OPTIONAL-

Preparation:
  1. Heat oil in a large heavy bottomed pan, wok, or large kadahi over medium-high heat
  2. Once oil is hot, add onion and sauté until tender - Add garlic and ginger and continue to sauté for 1 minute - Add garam masala, turmeric, red chile powder, and salt to taste and continue to sauté for 1 minute
  3. Add potatoes, cauliflower, carrots, green chile, cashews, coriander powder, and tomatoes to pan and sauté for an additional 5-7 minutes or until potatoes are just tender (add a little water if necessary to prevent sticking)
  4. Add green peas, bell pepper, raisins (if using), cream and yogurt - Bring to a low simmer; reduce heat to low/medium-low (you want to keep the heat as low as possible to keep the yogurt from separating)
