     Matar Mushroom Masala is the most popular curry in Indian restaurants. I hope that this curry is a prominent recipe on any Indian restaurant's menu. Mushrooms are low in energy, virtually free of fat, a valuable source of fibre and are cholesterol and carbohydrate-free. They are rich in Bvitamins and Iron. Hope it is healthy and let us see the recipe...

Matar Mushroom Masala


Button Mushroom -150g
Peas -25g (Frozen or Fresh)
Onion -1 (big) (blend to paste)
Tomato -2 (big) (blend to paste)
Cashewnut -30 (blend to paste) (20g)
Ginger Garlic paste -1 tbspn
Garam masala -2 tbspn
Chilli powder - 1/2 tbspn (Optional)
Bay leaf -1
Cloves-3 pieces
Cinnamon -2 pieces
Cardomom -2 pieces
Oil -2 tbspn
salt as required
water as required


Soak cashewnut in water for half an hour (or) cook cashews in boiling water for 5 minutes.
Make it as paste(blender or mixi).
Wash peas and boil it in water for 5 minutes.
Cook mushroom in boiling water for one minute.
Heat oil in a wok,add whole garam masala(bayleaf,cloves,cinnamon).
Add onion paste, ginger garlic paste and cashewnut paste.
Fry well and keep stirring so that it doesnt stick to pan.
Fry till the paste turns to little golden brown colour.
It indicates raw onion smell goes off and add tomato paste.
Cook till tomata paste is cooked and raw smell goes off.
Keep stirring ,add garam masala powder and chilli powder when oil oozes out from the paste.Check the salt.
Cook for few minutes and add cooked peas and mushroom.
Cover the pan and cook for 3 minutes.
Gravy is ready to serve.

 Another way
   Onion and tomato paste will take long time to cook .So just fry onion and tomato and blend it to make paste. This way is easy to make this masala.
