Mushroom Matar Curry | Mushroom Green Peas Curry Recipe


Mushroom Matar

Mushroom Matar Curry I have tasted once or twice only in Little India. I always preferred Mushroom Masala or babycorn mushroom masala (my fav) 😜😜 than this Mushroom matar. Last Sunday since it is Krithigai, I didn't cook any non veg recipes and thought I could try this mushroom green peas curry, as I need to finish the mushroom which I bought 4 days back. Half the mushrooms I used for this curry and other half I prepared the mushroom pakora. I had this Mushroom Matar Curry with the Crumbled Paneer Pulao.

Yummy and tasty Mushroom Matar Curry is ready. 


Notes:
  1. If you want you can saute the mushroom and add it at the final stage before adding the cream or milk.
  2. I used frozen peas. If you are using fresh peas steam cook and use. Else will take more time to get cooked. 
  3. I was in a hurry preparing this curry. So I didn't grind the tomato paste to a smooth consistency. Mine was a bit coarse and hence the coarse consistency of curry. So grind to a smooth paste. 
  4. I didn't have cream and I added milk. You can add cashew nut paste also to give a more rich taste. Adjust the cream according to your spiciness of the curry. 
  5. Try to use the fresh mushrooms. If you do not like the black part of the mushroom, you can remove it and use. 
  6. You can also make this curry as No onion No garlic curry by avoiding the garlic and onion.
