Mushroom peas curry

I am back here after a long long time and am myself feeling like everything in here is very new. We have had a new sweet addition to our family who kept me busy and tied-up all time that i almost forgot about my blog. I have a  toddler too who keeps running around the house that makes me feel overly busy sometimes :)

Today my friend was home for dinner when i was well reminded about my blog which had kept me pleasingly busy some time back. She told me that she was impressed with my blog and so tried a couple of recipes. Her words made me happy and a little proud too ... the fact being that she loved them both. Little praises from her made me happy and invoked me to write something tonight.

Its been really long that I wrote a post so I am feeling I am running too slow with my typing and thinking. Well, I have been trying and enjoying lot of recipes these days but just could not find time to take pics and post them. I specially learnt a lot new cos my mom and mil were with me for a while to help me with the little one. Hmmm... I know that sounds too much of a story to discuss a recipe.

Sooooooooooo....Its mushroom again. This one is like a simple twist to an old tale. I love this curry with a simple but pleasing combination of soft and tender mushrooms and silky smooth sweet peas. No sweating here... now that sounds interesting. It's so simple to make that it takes care of my dinner menu quite frequently ;)

We love this as my elder one is a big mushroom fan and a bigger peas fan. Thanks to him that i get to make it more often :) Goes perfect with rotis and pooris

Serves... 2 ppl 
Serve option... Warm puffy chapatis or pooris

This is what u'll need....

Jeera/Cumin seeds 1/4 tspn
Onion 1 medium
Green peas 1/4 cup
Mushroom 2 cups sliced
Milk 1/2 cup
Garam masala 1/4 tspn
Red Chilli powder 1/4 tspn
Salt to taste
Oil 1 tbspn

Here is the stir....
  • Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds
  • After few seconds toss in chopped onions and sprinkle salt. Fry them till onions turn translucent
  •  Add peas and cook for about 5 mins
  • Stir in mushrooms, chilli powder and give a quick toss. Let it sit on medium heat for about 5 mins. Mushrooms done need a lot of time to get cooked

  • Pour milk into it and let it all cook till mushroom and peas are cooked till soft
  • Sprinkle garam masala, give a quick stir and remove from heat
  • Transfer to a serving bowl. Enjoy this with rotis or pooris and you are sure to love it

Note :
  • Dont cook for too long. Both mushroom and peas are very tender so may take only a few mins before they can hop into the serving bowl :)
  • Adjust spices to suit your taste buds
  • Keep the flame when adding milk. Then after a few stirs you can go ahead to putting it on medium
