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.

RECIPE

INGREDIENTS:
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

DIRECTIONS:
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.

SERVING:
