Blend the coconut and cashew nuts in a blender to a fine paste.

Add coconut-cashew paste to the mushrooms. Consistency of the gravy depends on you. If it is too thick add water or if you want the gravy to be thick don’t add water. Let it come to a boil and cook for a minute or two. Turn off the heat and garnish with coriander leaves.
