Mushroom Masala



Mushroom Masala

This is a spicy  and delicious side dish for chapatis and naan. Mushrooms has always been a family favorite as it is low in calorie and fat content.I usually make mushrooms spicy just like any non vegetarian dish and the subtle mild flavor of mushrooms and the roasted spices complement each other so well. Here I have used the saute or pan fry method for the mushrooms and finally mixed in with the sauce. Light browning imparts richer flavor and taste to the mushrooms.Vegetarians will surely love this..



Ingredients

Mushrooms chopped- 2 cups
Onion sliced- 2 small
Tomato - 2 small
Ginger garlic paste- 1 1/2 tsp
Chilly powder- 1 tsp-
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Coriander power- 1 tsp
Garam masala- 3/4 tsp
Meat masala- 1/2 tsp ( optional)
Coriander leaves- a little

Heat oil in a pan and fry onions till golden brown. Add ginger garlic paste saute stir till there is a nice aroma.Add tomatoes and stir fry till it is mashed up and cooked. Allow this to cool a bit and using a mixer grind this into a fine paste and keep aside.
In a pan add one tsp of oil and stir fry the mushrooms. Season with salt and saute till the juice is reduced and the mushrooms change color to light brown. Drain out and keep aside. In the same pan add the ground masala and fry till oil separates. Add all the spice powder and fry in a low flames. Pour warm water and simmer the sauce for three minutes. Next add the fried mushrooms and simmer for one more minute. Finally garnish with coriander leaves.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..
