Nutty Mutter Mushroom

I am not much fan of Mushrooms.... But,it does have lots of health benefits... Studies shows it helps prevent the chronic disease, due to the presence of antioxidants...

I have tried lots of preparations of Mushroom.. Though it is loved by my family, the preparations somehow does not appeal me... And then I started avoiding getting Mushrooms from the store.

Last weekend, I went to the nearest Chinese grocery store... I love this store, as it always has fresh vegetables, any time of the day or any time of the week you check there... So, when I saw this box of Mushroom over there, couldn't resist and brought it home... Now, was confused what to make from these mushrooms... I thought, if nothing appeals me, then I will use it in a Veg Biryani.. Then, an idea stuck me, of making it with nuts...

I am glad, I made it, as I loved it... And it was so delicious, that all the curry was finished in 1 meal...
Happy me....

So, here is the recipe for Nutty Mutter Mushroom, for you to try.

Ingredients you will need-

  1. Onion - 1/2 (medium size)
  2. Garlic - 2 cloves
  3. Ginger - 1 tbsp(grated)
  4. Tomato - 1
  5. Peanuts - 1 handful
  6. Mushroom - 10-12 (thinly sliced)
  7. Peas - 1 handful
  8. Salt to taste
  9. Cooking Oil - 2 tbsp
  10. Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
  11. Red Chilli Powder according to taste ( I added 1 tsp, as I wanted my curry to be more spicy)
  12. Kitchen King Masala - 1/2 tsp
Directions to follow - 
  • Chop onion and garlic,and grind them together.
  • In a microwave safe plate, microwave peanuts for 2 minutes, at an interval of 1 minute.
  • In a pan, heat oil and add the onion paste, saute for a while till the raw smell goes away.
  • Add Ginger to the paste, but chopped tomato, add 2 tbsp of water, saute, cover and cook for couple of minutes.
  • Add all the masalas (spices), sliced Mushroom and add 1/2 cup of water,reduce the flame to medium, cover and cook till oil separates.
  • Meanwhile, grind Peanuts in the same jar (which was earlier used for onions), without water and make it coarse powder... Then, add 2 tbsp of water and grind again to make a thick paste.
  • Now, add peas, peanut paste, and 1 glass full of water... Increase the flame, and let the mixture come to a boil..
  • Then, reduce the flame to low and let it get cooked, covered for another 15-20 minutes, or till the mushroom is cooked.
  • I kept the gravy little on thicker side as I was going to have it with Chapati (Wheat Tortilla)... If you want to have it with rice, you can make the gravy lighter by adding boiled water in it and little bit of salt....

Enjoy your delicious Nutty Mutter(Peas) Mushroom hot...
