I have been getting requests from some of my readers to post more veg recipes. Though I make normal veg dishes frequently, I somehow was not convinced about blogging about it, thinking that it is everyday stuff and nobody would be interested in that…. but I guess I was proved wrong … anyways here is a veg recipe, its not that everyday stuff, but at the same time its not something extraordinary also…

I have made this a few times before, but couldn’t take the photo at that time…. this recipe is from Sanjeev Kapoor’s Khazana of Indian Recipes. This goes well with roti, plain rice and pulav.

Recipe for Mushroom Peas Masala:

Mushroom Peas Masala
Author: 
Recipe type: Side Dish
Cuisine: Indian
Serves: 3-4
 
Ingredients
  • Mushroom - 200 gms
  • Peas - 1½ cups (I used frozen peas)
  • Onion - 2 big (thinly sliced)
  • Cardamom - 4
  • Cinnamon - 1 med size piece
  • Ginger garlic paste - 1 tbsp each
  • Tomato paste - ½ cup
  • Chilly powder - 1 tbsp
  • Coriander powder - 1 tbsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
  • Garam masala - 1 tsp
  • Cashew nut paste - ½ cup
  • Salt
  • Oil
Instructions
  1. Cut mushroom into bite size pieces.
  2. Heat oil in a pan & add cardamom, cinnamon & onion. Stir it till the onion turns golden brown colour. Add ginger garlic paste and stir for a few minutes. Add tomato paste along with spice powders and cook till the oil starts appearing.
  3. Mix the cashew nut paste with one cup water and add to the curry. When it starts boiling add sliced mushroom & peas. Cook till the vegetables are done.
  4. For cashew nut paste, soak 10-15 cashew nuts in warm water for 10 minutes and grind it with a little water. The gravy tends to be thick after sometime, so adjust the quantity of gravy accordingly.

  • Roshini

    Is it possible to make this without the cashew nut paste?! I mean would it seriously affect the taste!?

    • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

      Hi Roshini,

      Yes, you can make it without cashew paste also. The texture of the curry will not be that rich n creamy, apart from that the taste is ok.

      You can avoid cashew paste and instead of water, you can add a cup of medium-thick coconut milk. Though this slighlty changes the taste n flavor of the curry.

      Cheers
      Maria

        @Maria, Cool… will try it out n let u know how it turns out! :)

  • Sindhu Nair

      Hi Sindhu,

  • Ranjit Gopi

    Nice curry….however should we use black cardamom or green cardamom? I used black, which is not right I think!

    • http://mariasmenu.com Maria Jose

      Hi Ranjit,

      Thank you! Its green cardamom. I usually use green cardamom in my cooking.
