Heat oil and fry the potatoes and cauliflower in batches till they start to brown. Remove with slotted spoon and set aside.

In a pan, dry roast the cardamom, cinnamon, and clove. Add oil add the red dry chili and the fenugreek seeds.  Once they start to sizzle add the sliced onions and fry till they just start to brown.

Add the ginger paste, the garlic paste and the tomato puree. Add salt, turmeric and red chili powder to it. Fry till you see the oil leaving the sides of the pan. Add the cauliflower and the potato. Stir gently to mix, so all the tomato gravy coats the vegetables. Add half cup of water,  cover and cook till the potatoes and cauliflowers are tender but not mushy. Add the creme, and simmer for about another 10 minutes. Sprinkle kasuri methi on the top and gently mix.
