Kadai Mushroom Gravy Recipe - Mushroom Recipes

Kadai Mushroom Masala Recipe
Kadai Mushroom is my fav or I should say anything tagged as 'kadai', I just love it.The spice mix is the main reason I guess,the flavour the freshly ground spices lend is so good and that's the reason I love kadai paneer too.As I always say I have a love-hate relationship with mushroom  but now having known the knack of cooking mushrooms, its going to be my love for a while now :)

I often make either Mushroom Biryani or Pepper Mushroom so this kadai mushroom is my last option as its only me who loves kadai mushroom so its given the last priority but given a chance I never leave it :) Looking for a simple mushroom curry then mushroom do pyaza will be the best choice.

I've already posted kadai mushroom masala which is a different version, recently I tried it this way after tasting at a restaurant and this version is going to be my keeper hereafter. :) Veg Pulao, Dal and Kadai Mushroom Gravy and that fixed the special lunch :)

My Notes:

  • This is medium spicy with the measurement I have given. You can adjust according to your taste buds.
  • Adding cream gives a creamy and rich restaurant flavour.I used homemade fresh cream.
  • The consistency should be flowing and creamy.

    1. Spice powder is the freshly ground powder that we are making in step 1 and no need of red chilli powder in this recipe
