Mushroom Masala

It is a known fact that we love mushrooms and my blog is a living example for the number of mushroom recipes that we try and make at home. From a spicy Chettinad Mushroom Biryani to a highly flavorful Chettinad Mushroom curry to Mushroom sauce Pasta to Β No Onion Mushroom Masala to Tandoori Mushroom Tikka to Mushroom Manchurian, I have a whole lot of mushroom recipes. And here is one more to add to that list – a simple yet really delicious and creamy Restaurant Style Mushroom Masala.

Mushroom Masala

Cooking mushrooms is like a dream! All you need is 10-12 mins and as they quickly absorb any kind of spices, it is very easy to make something delicious with them. This recipe for restaurant style mushroom masala uses very limited number of spices but then results in a very flavorful semi-gravy that goes really well with any Indian bread or Pulao.

I used a little bit more oil than I would like to use otherwise but what’s a restaurant style mushroom masala gravy if not for the creamy, greasy bit. I also used some fresh cream to cut through the spiciness and that adds a little bit sweetness to an otherwise spicy mushroom masala. If you are watching your calories, cut down on the oil as well as cream, you would still have a perfect mushroom gravy. But for once in a while indulgence or when you have guests over, this is an easy dish to impress! Stay tuned to know what I served this with πŸ™‚
