1. In a small food processor, process together the ginger, garlic, cashews, and poppy seeds, adding about 2 tablespoons water to make a paste. Mix in the garam masala and transfer to a bowl.
2. Heat the oil in a large nonstick wok or saucepan over medium-high heat and add the cumin seeds and red chili peppers they should sizzle upon contact with the hot oil. Quickly add the potatoes, turmeric, and salt and stir until golden, 5 to7 minutes.
3. Add the ginger-poppy seed paste and continue to stir over medium-low heat until traces of oil are visible on the sides, 7 to 10 minutes. Add the yogurt, a little at a time, stirring constantly to prevent it from curdling.
4. Add the water, cover the pan, and cook over medium-high heat until the potatoes are soft and the sauce is thick, about 10 minutes. Add the cream or coconut milk, if using, and simmer another 3 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish, lightly stir n the cardamom seeds, and serve.
