North Indian Mushroom Curry


Mushrooms are one of my favourite foods, alongside curry! So when I found this recipe for a curried mushroom you can only imagine what kind of joy I felt. If you happen to be vegetarian then, obviously you’ll be feeling the love too.


2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/4 teaspoon black peppercorns
4 cardamon pods
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 onion (finely chopped)
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon garama masala
1 fresh green chilli (finely chopped)
2 cloves garlic (crushed)
1 teaspoon fresh ginger (finely grated)
1 can chopped tomatoes
1/4 teaspoon salt
450g button mushrooms
fresh coriander

Heat the oil over a medium heat in a large casserole pan or wok and fry the cumin seeds, peppercorns, cardamon and turmeric for abour 2 minutes until aromatic. Add the onion and fry for 5 minutes until golden. Stir in the cumin and coriander powder and garama masala and fry gently for a further 2 minutes.
Add the chilli, garlic and ginger and stir fry for 2-3 more minutes before adding the salt and tomatoes. Bring this liquid slowly to the boil and simmer gently for 5 minutes.
Halve the larger mushrooms and add them to the pan stirring well. Cover the pan and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Sprinkle over some fresh coriander and serve with rice and/or some kind of Indian bread.
