Refer following API docs -

curl -XGET -H 'accept: application/json'
-H 'x-client-id: "YOUR APP ID GOES HERE"'
-H 'x-client-secret: "YOUR SECRET KEY GOES HERE'
-H 'x-api-version: "2023-08-01"'

  "entity": "order",
  "order_amount": 1.00
  "order_status": "PAID",

2. Check payment status by relying on webhook

You can also listen to the payment webhook which is asynchronously sent by Cashfree once the payment flow has ended and on receiving the webhook you can initiate a getStatus call.
