Mushroom Masala

Mushrooms are the only fruit or vegetable with natural vitamin D. With vitamin D deficiency on the rise, eating fresh mushrooms is one way to add more D to your diet.

September is National Mushroom Month, a time to commemorate mushrooms and everything they do to keep us happy and healthy. These are a hearty and fulfilling meat replacement. Save on calories and fat without sacrificing flavor.I read all this info on net so thought of rediscovering  them and  So i am gonna try some new recipes with Mushroom and i really like the stuffed mushroom recipe ,gonna try it soon and give you the update.I have another recipe in my kitty Mushroom Peas fry which is a curried version of it and this one here can be used as a side with any curry.

  • 1 cup Mushrooms washed, cleaned and chopped(I have used Portabella Mushrooms)
  • 2 Onions chopped
  • 2 tomatoes chopped into big pieces
  • 1 cup frozen peas 
  • 1 tbs Ginger garlic freshly grated /paste
  • 1 tsp Chilli powder
  • 1 tsp Coriander powder
  • 1tsp garam Masala
  • 1/2 lemon
  • Salt to taste
  • 2-3 Tbs Oil
  1. Heat oil in a pan and add ginger/garlic paste.
  2. Now add the onions, fry them untill they r light brown. Add salt as required.
  3. Then add the chopped Mushroom and fry them on medium -High heat.
  4.  Add the spices to it and mix well.
  5. Add the tomatoes when mushrooms are cooked and saute for 1 min , cover the pan and switch off the flame the tomatoes will get cooked in the heat and squeeze in the lemon.
  6. Garnish with cilantro and serve with Chapatis or Naan.
