Kadai Mushroom | Indian Curry Recipes

Mushrooms is one of my favorite vegetables. I love its simple flavor and 
meaty texture very much that I grab a box whenever I go for grocery shopping. I try to sneak in mushrooms in every possible dish from pastas to omelets, but every now and then I make mushroom as a side dish for rotis. Did you know mushroom is a great side for curd rice? Try it next time and you will love it. I have tried Kadai Mushroom from Denny's space for a  couple of times but managed to get some clicks this time.


Ingredients:
Original Recipe here
Mushroom - white or button - 1/2 lb - cleaned and quartered
Green bell pepper - cut into 1" pieces - 1/2 cup
Onions - chopped - 1 cup
Tomato - big and ripe - 2 - quartered (Use canned crushed tomatoes if desired)
Garlic - finely chopped - 1 tbsp
Ginger - finely chopped - 1 tbsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Chilli powder - 3/4 tsp (use 1 tsp if using Kashmiri chilli powder)
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Cumin powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 1 1/2 tbsp
Method:
Crush the tomatoes in a blender until coarsely crushed, do not make a puree. Pulsing for a couple of times would do the trick. Heat oil in a wide pan and splutter the cumin seeds. Add the chopped onions and fry until golden brown. Add in the ginger and garlic and saute for about a minute. Add all the spice powders and fry until a nice aroma comes out. Add the crushed tomatoes and salt and allow it to cook until the oil floats on the top. Add the quartered mushrooms and allow to cook in medium heat for about 5 mins. Do not overcook the mushrooms as it may shrink, we still want it to be meaty. Add the green bell peppers and another 1/4 cup of water and allow it to cook for another 5 mins. Serve hot with rice or roti.
