Mushroom Potato Masala

Mushroom Potato Masala, well the name is kinda self explanatory. The mushroom was supposed to be the star and the potato was a seat filler. However, potato turned out to be a star as well and not just a seat filler.

Though I buy Mushroom often, it ends up in pasta or omelet. This time I wanted to make a curry out of it and here you go.

This Mushroom Potato Masala is a simple and easy veg dish recipe that goes well with rice and roti. Mushroom gives the flavor and potato adds texture to this humble but tasty dish.

Give it a try and let me know how you like it, ok?

  • 200 gms Mushroom, sliced (I used white button mushroom)
  • 1 medium Potato (cubed and parboiled)
  • 1 big Onion (chopped)
  • 1.5 – 2 tsp Crushed garlic
  • 1 tsp Crushed ginger
  • 2 Green chilli (slit lengthwise)
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
  • 1.5 – 2 tsp Coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp Fennel powder
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp Pepper powder
  • 1/4 – 1/3 cup Medium thick coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp Chopped coriander leaves
  • Salt
  • 1 tbsp Coconut oil


  • Heat oil in a wide pan. Add chopped onion and cook till it caramelises.
  • Add crushed ginger garlic and green chillies. Cook for 2-3 mins or until the raw smell goes.
  • Add all the spice powders (turmeric, coriander, fennel & pepper powder). Cook for 2-3 mins or until oil starts appearing.
  • Add mushroom and salt. Mix well and cook on low flame for 5-7 mins.
  • Add parboiled potato to the masala and cook till both mushroom and potato are done.
  • Add medium thick coconut milk, bring it to boil, reduce flame and cook till gravy is reduced.
  • Drizzle 1 tsp ghee (optional, but recommended) and add chopped coriander leaves.
  • Serve hot with rice or roti.


You can sub mushroom with cauliflower if you like. If you like to have gravy, increase the quantity of coconut milk.
