Mushroom Gravy

Turning to the problem that I faced a couple of days back was that, I happened to visit Ven’s place (which I normally do) and I had to cook for lunch, oh he being a bachelor I knew I can’t except to cook anything on the fly… You won’t believe he carries weird stuff which we would really expect in a bachelors place like Masoor Dhal, Panch Puran etc.

Like any other day I went prepared to make Parothas and Mushroom Curry, but unlikely I forgot most of the stuff like masala and other things… So I started with this simple dish just with few things on hand I started but I knew the outcome was gonna come out really really well… Yeah, you will agree with me, many a time when we cook with lil to meager amount of ingredients it does come out well… Not wasting much time I started with the dish, now to the recipe…



Ingredients:

Onion – 1 large
Mushroom – 1 pack
Panch Puran – ½ tsp
Cumin Seeds – ½ tsp
Turmeric Powder – ¼ tsp
Garam Masala – 2 tbsps
Coriander Powder – ½ tbsp
Green Chillies – 2-3 nos.
Ginger – 1”
Garlic Pods – 5 nos.
Milk – 1 ½ - 2 cups no Water required
Cooking Oil – 2 tbsps + ¼ tbsp
Salt to taste

Method:

Simple to start off with this recipe, blend the Onion, Green Chillies, Ginger and Garlic do not add Water blend in a couple of times they will come along with no Water. Heat Oil in a pan throw in the Panch Puran and Cumin Seeds, when they sizzle add the Onion paste and cook on low – medium heat for about 5 mins until they thicken. Do not let it to burn or brown up, pour a lil Milk if it starts to burn… Mix in the Garam Masala, Coriander Powder and Turmeric Powder cover and cook for awhile. Again pour the Milk if the mixture thickens.

In the mean time heat up another wok and drizzle ¼ tbsp of Oil and fry the chopped Mushrooms. Now add the remaining Milk and let it cook for a couple of minutes and throw in the Mushrooms, adjust Salt and cook for another few minutes. Here your dish is ready…



Serve with: Roti, Pulav, Dosa or Idly
