Mushroom Masala

Mushroom-Masala2, originally uploaded by gems7882.

I made this for lunch yesterday and it turned out so well, I couldnt stop myself from blogging (read bragging) about this. It was just like the mushroom masala we get in Indian restaurants and It was literally onion free ( U dont count 2 green onions :P) Here is the recipe for the same.

Ingredients :

Mushroom - 1 big box.
Ginger - 2 tsp
Garlic 1 tsp
Tomato paste / puree - 1 small can
Bellpepper and onion - 1/4 cup each (optional)
Salt to taste.
Turmeric pwdr - 1/2 tsp
Red chilli pwdr - 2 tsp (we like it spicy) u can substitute with green chillies if u wish.
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Whole spices (cardamom -1, cinamon- small piece, Star anise- 1 leaf, Bay leaf - 1, cloves 2)
Milk - 3/4 cup
Constarch - 2 tsp
Fresh coriander garnish

Method :

Method : Take oil..add the whole spices to it...add garlic and ginger saute for a minute... then add the bell pepper and onion and saute. Add salt, turmeric, garam maslaa and the mix well.

Add the tomato paste and above a cup water and let ...it boil well...so that the tomato cooks. once the tomato cooks and the gravy thickens a bit....add the milk mixed with constarch to the gravy. mix well and let it cook. Add some crushed methi leaves for the lovely smell. Let it thicken and gel well.

In another saute pan add the chopped mushroom and sprinkle some salt and pepper. cook on high flame and stir for 2-3 minutes. off the gas and keep it aside. Let it leave some water... then drain the water and add the mushroom to the gravy. Take care about the salt u add to the gravy as u will be adding salt seperately for the mushrooms.

Add mushrooms to gravy.. mix ad cook for 5-6 minutes. Off the gas and garnish with coriander leaves.

Your Mushroom Masala restaurant style is ready to be eaten with, naan, phulkas or parathas.
