- 200 grams mushroom (1 Pack)
- 2–3 tablespoons oil
- ½ teaspoon cumin seeds
- ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
- 1 teaspoon coriander powder
- 1 tablespoon dry fenugreek
- 2 medium tomatoes
- 1 green chilli
- ½ inch ginger
- Few cashews about 10-12
- 1½ teaspoon kashmiri red chill powder
- ¼ cup fresh cream/malai
- Salt to taste
- 2–3 tablespoons chopped coriander leaves
- 1 sachet maggi masala
- Take 200 grams of a white button mushroom pack.
- Wash thoroughly underwater. Do not keep them in water for too long otherwise, they will absorb the water.
- Immediately, pat-dry the mushrooms on kitchen cloth.
- Then discard the bottom portion and slice the mushrooms.
- Now, heat 2-3 tablespoons oil in a wok or kadhai.
- Add cumin seeds to crackle. Turn the flame low to avoid the burning of the spices.
- Add turmeric powder, coriander powder, dry fenugreek leaves, and saute the spices well.
- Make a puree of tomato, 1-green chili, ginger, and 10-12 cashews.
- Add the prepared tomato purée to the kadhai and roast till the oil separates from the masala. Keep the flame low to medium and add kashmiri red chili powder.
- Once the oil separates from the masala, add fresh malai and roast the masala till the oil separates.
- When the masala is roasted, add mushroom slices, salt to taste, and chopped coriander leaves to the masala.
- Cook everything for 1-2 minutes, add ½ cup of water and mix well. Keep gravy consistency light or heavy as you please.
- Cover and cook the curry for 3-4 minutes over low-medium heat.
- Check the curry after 4 minutes. When the sabzi is almost ready, add a sachet of Maggi masala, and mix well. Cover and cook this for another 2 minutes.
- Transfer the sabzi to the serving bowl and garnish it with green coriander leaves.
- This spicy mushroom curry is ready to be served.
- Serve it with chapati, paratha, naan, or rice.
- We used cashews to make gravy heavy, however, you can use poppy seeds, melon seeds, or almonds.
