Mushroom Peas Masala

Writing a Guest post is always exciting. When Beula from EaterSpot asked me to do a Guest post, I accepted happily. The joy was doubled when she told me it was for celebrating the Indian Independence day!

Few words about EaterSpot, in Beula’s own words:

“I began blogging in March 2010 purely because of boredom. I moved from the US to New Zealand, had a full time job, was newly married but wanted to do more stuff … thus my food blogging journey began. Over on my blog EATERSPOT, I share about recipes that have been part of my family and new recipes as well based on my current cravings or menu planning.

I’ve got non-vegetarian, vegetarian, Indian recipes and recipes from different cuisines, vegan, Gluten Free, Paleo and some kids recipes too :)”

Mushroom Peas Masala:

Preparation Time : 10 min | Cooking Time : 25 mins | Serves : 3
Recipe Category: Side dish



Button Mushroom – 200 grams

Frozen Peas – 1/2 cup

Onion – 1 big, finely chopped

Tomato – 2

Ginger garlic paste- 1 tsp

Garam Masala powder- 1 tsp

Chilli powder – 1/2 tsp

Coriander powder – 1/2 tsp

Cumin powder – 1/4 tsp

Milk – 1/4 cup

Turmeric powder – 1/8 tsp

Cinnamon Powder – 1/4 tsp

Salt – as needed

To temper:

Oil – 1 tsp

Cardamom – 2 pods

Bay leaf -1


• Wash the Mushroom well with hot water and keep it soaked in water (As mushroom turns to oxidise, I added a pinch of turmeric powder in water to prevent them changing color)
• Boil onion and tomato in hot water and strain the water. When it comes to room temperature, blend them into fine paste

• Add oil to the pan. Add bay leaf and cardamom after the oil becomes little hot. Add ginger garlic paste and sauté for 30 seconds. Add the blended tomato and onion puree and cook for 2 -3 minutes. Add garam masala, coriander powder, cumin powder, chilli powder, turmeric powder and allow it to cook for 2-3mins
• Add the mushroom, peas and salt. Saute well for 2-3 minutes


• Add cinnamon powder and milk and let it cook for 3-5 minutes



My Notes:
• I didn’t add water while cooking mushroom, as there was enough moisture, but you can sprinkle little water if required
• Instead of milk, you can add 1/4 cup of curd or 2 tbsp of fresh cream
• If you are using a cinnamon stick, add it while tempering
• This gravy goes well with any variety rice like fried rice/ pulao as well as with naan/rotis
• I boiled the onions and blended them, as it will save time while cooking. Instead, you can also sauté the onions
