Step1 – Take a pan and add oil in it.When the oil is hot add cardamom , cloves and 1tsp. of cumin seeds(jeera).

Step2-Now add onion and ginger garlic paste and saute them till they turn brown.

Step3-Slow the flame and add salt, dhania powder, red chilli powder, garam masala and haldi powder in it.Mix all the ingredients nicely.

Step4– Add chopped tomatoes and chopped green chilli.Cook till the oil separates from the gravy which is going to take like 6-7 minutes.

Step5-Add the mushrooms and cover the pan with a lid  for five minutes .There is no need to add water in it because mushroom contains water themselves.Remove the lid and check wether mushrooms have been cooked or not.

Spicy mushroom is ready to be served.Serve with parantha, rice, Nan or Dosa..they taste yummm..!!!

P.S- To make mushroom curry just add 2 cups of water when tomatoes and onion paste leave some oil.

  6. Kasoori methi is a herb Poornima..and if you add in dry sabji of mushrooms, potatoes it brings out nice flavour..

    i also use to think that it will make food bitter but till now it has never done ..it doesnt have any bitterness at all may be because it is dried na..

  7. Hey…one doubt

    What is this Kasoori Methi used for? Does it really make dishes taste bitter like when fresh Methi leaves are added? I love the taste of methi leaves, but some dishes dont require that kind of bitterness no..Thats why I asked
