Mushroom Masala Recipe

Delicious, aromatic mushroom masala with creamy gravy, flavorful spices, and tender mushrooms. 


Mushroom 2 cups

Oil 1 tbsp

Bayleaf 2 pcs

Clove 5-7 pcs

Black cardamom 1 pc

Green cardamom 3-4 pcs

Black pepper 8-10 pcs

Cinnamon 1 inch

Jeera 1 tsp

Onion chopped 1 cup

Green chilli chopped ½ tbsp

Besan 1 tbsp

Ginger & garlic paste 1 tbsp

Turmeric powder ½ tbsp

Deggi mirch powder 1 tbsp

Coriander powder 1 tbsp

Jeera powder ½ tbsp

Garam masala 1 tsp

Salt ½ tbsp

Curd ½ cup

Sabzi masala 1 tbsp

Tomato puree 2 tbsp

Cashew paste 2 tbsp

Water as required 

Sugar ½ tsp

Kasoori methi 1 tbsp

Coriander chopped 1 tbsp

Fresh cream ½ tbsp



Heat a pan and add oil. Once the oil is hot, add cumin seeds, bay leaves, cloves, black cardamom, green cardamom, black pepper, and cinnamon. Let the whole spices crackle and release their aroma.

Add chopped onions to the pan and sauté them for a minute or until they turn translucent.

Now, add the chopped green chilli and continue sautéing with the onions.

Sprinkle besan (gram flour) over the sautéed onions and cook until the besan becomes fragrant and slightly changes colour.

Incorporate ginger & garlic paste into the pan and cook it along with the onions and besan.

Add turmeric powder, deggi mirch powder (Kashmiri red chilli powder), coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala, and salt. Mix the spices well and cook them for a minute to develop their flavours.

Pour in the whisked curd (yoghurt) and continue cooking until the mixture releases oil. This indicates that the spices are well cooked.

Add some water to adjust the consistency of the gravy and mix all the ingredients thoroughly.

Now, add the diced mushrooms to the pan and let them cook in the flavorful gravy.

Stir in the tomato puree and let it blend with the rest of the ingredients, adding a tangy twist to the dish.

Incorporate the boiled cashew paste, which adds creaminess and richness to the gravy. Mix well and cook the curry for 3-4 minutes.

Finally, add sugar, kasoori methi (dried fenugreek leaves), chopped coriander leaves, and fresh cream to enhance the taste and aroma of the mushroom masala.

Gently mix all the ingredients and cook for another 30 seconds to allow the flavours to meld together.
