Mushroom Curry Recipe – How to make Restaurant style Mushroom Masala Curry | Mushroom recipe

Mushroom curry made with simple spices available at home. Just follow my step by step video to make lip smacking, spicy restaurant style mushroom curry. Do try this mushroom masala curry and let us know how it turns out. Mushroom is my family favorite. I make them in many ways. Do check out my baked stuffed mushrooms, which is made by stuffing mushrooms with veggies and cheese, mushroom spinach curry where mushrooms are cooked in onion, tomato and spinach gravy, Kadai mushrooms , where mushroom is made in same way as kadai paneer.  I also use them in pizza, tortilla spring rolls and sandwiches. They are very versatile, full of protein and always taste yum.For today’s mushroom curry recipe I cooked them in onion tomato and garlic gravy, flavored with kasoori methi and spices. I like to keep the gravy little thick and spicy. You can change the consistency of the gravy according to your preferences. But do not add water till mushrooms are fully cooked otherwise mushrooms will become soggy. You can enjoy it with jeera rice, naan, kulcha, rumali roti or parathas. It tastes super yum. While making this mushroom masala curry it is very important that onions should cook till they are nice brown otherwise they will not dissolve in gravy and will not taste good. Also instead of cream I have added milk but if you like you can add cream. Here it is important that you use boiled milk otherwise it will curdle and mushroom curry will not taste good. This Indian style mushroom curry recipe tastes just like what we get in restaurant. If you want you can also add some boiled green peas and convert it to “restaurant style matar mushrooms”.
