Quick and Easy Mushroom Curry!!!

Hi guys!!!

Mushroom is a very rare ingredient that I use in cooking. My husband just likes them in deep fried versions and I am pretty reluctant these days to prepare deep-fried oily dishes. That clearly rules out the chance of preparing mushroom in his favorite way. A couple of weeks back when I saw the sliced and packed mushrooms I thought it was time I prepared a simple mushroom curry at home. With the anytime available ingredients, this curry is almost ready in 15 minutes.

Lets take a look at the recipe.


Mushroom - 200 gms (cleaned and diced)
Onion -  big
Tomato - 1 big
Ginger & garlic paste - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Corriander powder - 1 tsp
Fennel powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Salt - as required
Oil - 1 tbsp


1. Heat the oil in a kadai on medium heat. Add the chopped onions and saute till they turn transparent and crisp.
2. Add the ginger garlic paste and mix till the raw smell goes. Now add the chopped tomatoes and saute till they combine well to form a paste.
3. Now add salt and all the masala powders except garam masala and mix till they blend in well.
4. Toss the chopped mushroom into the kadai and mix well. There is no need to add water at this stage 'coz the mushroom lets out moisture when cooked on medium heat.
5. Close the lid and let it cook for 5 minutes. If the bottom starts to get sticky sprinkle some water and cover and cook for another 10 minutes.
6. Add the garam masala and mix well, check the salt and spice level and turn off heat.

The easiest curry I have ever prepared. It tasted great with rotis and pulao.
