Add in the onions and salt. Sauté for a few minutes. Add in the spice powders and the sugar. Sauté for a few seconds. Do not sauté for long as the spice powders can burn if fried for long.

Make a paste by grinding garlic, ginger and tomatoes. Add it to the pan. Cover and cook for 5-6 minutes. The masala powders and the tomatoes will be well cooked in this time. Add in the mushroom and the green peas. Add 1/2 cup of water. Cover and cook till the mushrooms are soft. It will take about 5-7 minutes.

Soak cashews, poppy seeds and coconut in half a cup of water for five minutes. Grind to a fine paste. Add the paste to the pan. Cover and cook for five more minutes on a low flame. The curry will become thick in the mean time. Finish the mushroom peas masala with a generous sprinkle of coriander leaves. Mushroom peas masala is ready.
