Once the onions turn translucent, add the tomatoes. Mix well.Cover and cook till the tomatoes start breaking down and the mixture starts leaving oil at the edges. Switch off the flame and set aside to cool.Once cool enough to handle, fish out as many whole spices as possible, and grind the mixture to a smooth paste.In the same pan or kadhai, heat the remaining butter and add the curry paste. Add garam masala powder, chili powder, turmeric, salt along with 1/2 cup water. Bring this to a boil.Once the curry comes to a boil, simmer and cook for 30 minutes, till the oil separates slightly. In another pan, dry roast the kasuri methi and grind it to a fine powder. Mix kasuri methi and fresh cream in the curry and switch off the flame.

Serve with cheese cubes and fresh cream.
