Matar Mushroom Masala

As mushrooms are good source of protein I include in our diet atleast once in a week and never forget to get a pack of mushrooms while doing grocery.
Most of dinner would be either roti and some curry or idly and chutney,my son loves to have some gravies for roti rather than dhal so I prefer to make curry.
Last week got a pack of mushrooms and fresh green peas and made this delicious curry which goes very well with roti and paratha.Lets get into the recipe........................

Enjoy.......................................................

  • Instead of green peas,soaked and cooked dried peas can be used,but flavor will be very nice wth the green peas.
  • I used the coconut milk powder for the coconut milk you can use the thick fresh coconut milk.
  • Add garam masala powder in the end to get a nice flavor.
  • The ginger and garlic can be replaced with 2tsp of ginger&garlic paste.
