Mushroom Matar Masala

Initially I was not a big fan of mushrooms. But my husband loved them alot. So I started eating with him and now I too enjoy eating and making mushroom dishes. Mushroom matar masala is one dish I prepare quite frequently. Its one of my favorite combination.

3 cups sliced mushrooms
1 cup green peas/matar
1 onion sliced
1 tomato diced
1/2 inch ginger
3-4 garlic cloves
1 clove
1/2 inch cinnamon stick
2 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp dhania powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp cumin seeds/jeera
1/2 tsp turmeric/haldi
1/4 cup milk
4-5 tsp oil

  1. Heat 2 tsp oil in small kadhai. Add cloves and cinnamon.
  2. Add garlic. Fry till it turns golden. Add sliced onion and ginger and fry till onion turns tender. Fry tomatoes till they become soft.
  3. Let this cool down and then grind to a smooth paste.
  4. In a deep kadhai, heat remaining oil. Add cumin seeds and turmeric.
  5. Add puree we prepared. Fry for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Then add milk and mix immediately so that milk does not curdle.
  7. Add peas and mushrooms.  Add red chilli powder, dhania powder, garam masala and salt.Mix nicely. Add 1/2 cup of water.
  8. Cover with lid and cook till mushrooms are cooked nicely.
