Mutter Mushroom / Mushroom Peas Curry


                                                                           
For the first 15 years of my life I never had tasted mushrooms !! Surprised??? Well don't be as it was not easily available in our small town. First time I got a taste of this during our summer holidays trip to Delhi. We had mushroom soup and it was simply blissful !!! 
After marriage I had to learn many mushroom recipes as my hubby is an avid fan of mushrooms. He loves it more than chicken. So, I am posting a spicy and tasty mushroom preparation which can be cooked easily. Hope all you friends like it.




Ingredients:
200 gms Button mushroom
1 cup Green peas
2 Onions, ground to paste
1/2 Tomato puree
2 tsp Cashew paste
1" inch Ginger
5-6 Garlic
2-3 Green chillies
1 tsp Coriander powder
1/2 tsp Cumin powder
1/2 tsp Garam masala
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
3/4 tsp Red chilly powder
1" Cinnamon stick
2 tbsp Oil/Ghee
1 cup Water
Salt to taste
Green onion, finely chopped


Method:
Clean, wash and pat dry the mushrooms, cut into four pieces. Fry along with a little ghee till it turns light pink and keep aside. Dip the peas in hot water for 20 minutes.
Make a paste of onion, garlic, gren chilli and ginger. Heat ghee/oil in a pan and add cinnamon stick and onion-garlic paste. Saute on medium flame till light brown. Add coriander, cumin, turmeric, red chilly powder and mix well all the spices. Add salt and tomatoe puree and fry till it leaves oil. Add cashew paste and again fry it till oil comes out of the masala. Add mushrooms and peas and saute it for 5 minutes. Pour water and bring it to a boil on high, then lower the flame and cook till the green peas are soft and tender. Check the consistency of the gravy, add garam masala and chopped spring onion. Serve it hot with flavoured pulao / Nan or roti and enjoy !!!
