Mushroom Masala | Mushroom gravy Curry

Mushroom masala is a delicious Indian curry made with mushrooms, onion, tomatoes, and spices. The mushroom masala is one of the best I have been making at home to serve with roti and chapati. It is quite simple to make and tastes delicious. We love rice or gravy recipes that are packed with flavors.

This mushroom masala goes well as a side with roti, chapati, paratha, or even rice. We can also prepare a different variety of dishes like Mushroom Biryani, mushroom pulao, stir fry.

In this recipe, we need some prep work like making an onion paste and tomato paste, which can be easily done in a mixer or blender. Fresh yogurt/curd is also added to this recipe. If you don’t like yogurt just avoid and you can also use tamarind paste to get that sour/tangy flavor.

How to Clean Mushrooms

For all mushrooms: Use a damp paper towel or a soft mushroom brush to wipe each mushroom, one at a time, to remove any dirt. We can lightly rinse the mushrooms with cool water and pat dry with paper towels but do not soak the mushrooms. Because they absorb water like sponges and mushrooms won’t brown nicely when cooked if they are full of water.

How to Cut Mushrooms

  • After cleaning mushrooms, trim thin slices from the ends of the stems.
  • Using a sharp knife cut the mushrooms into halves or quarters, or slice or chop as needed.
