Kadai Mushroom Gravy

Kadai Mushroom Gravy
Okay, maybe my mushroom gravy isn’t better than yours, but it’s definitely better than anything the local restaurants joint offers. I need to put more effort into the side dishes I serve my family. Getting them to eat their vegetables is tough enough, but when the energy I put into making them appealing is lacking – it’s even tougher. If you’re not eating mushrooms, you should be. At least I think so. Beyond being extremely tasty they’re also really good for you. I'm in love with mushrooms of any kind and they  just appears on my dinning table at least once a week in some ways. I cannot control myself when I see packets of mushroom staked up in food section of the supermarket. Will always grab a few packets. Today I'm going share the Kadai Mushroom Gravy with you folks.

The traditional Indian recipe for curried mushrooms involves frying sliced onions along with crushed ginger paste and a mixture of coriander, cumin and turmeric powder, in vegetable oil before adding mushrooms and peas to it. Coarsely chopped tomatoes or yogurt are added to the curry pot after the mushrooms are well coated with the spices. The entire concoction is allowed to simmer for some time until the mushrooms turn tender when it is removed from heat and served with a garnish of coriander leaves and freshly ground peppercorns. Garam masala powder as well as hot chili powder are added to enhance the spiciness of the mushroom curry:) Just get back to ur kitchen and try out this Kadai Mushroom delivered straight from my kitchen to yours..see ya soon with another recipe:)
