Mushroom Kurma, the flavorful coconut gravy with mushroom. Always i make chettinad mushroom masala or mushroom pepper masala for chapathi. Today i want to make something different ,so tried the basic veg kurma masala and add mushroom in it and it turns out absolutely delicious.First i was hesitant to try mushroom with coconut, but this masala totally changed my opnion,so if you like coconut flavor, then give it a try to this kurma and enjoy with your family.

Mushroom Kurma

Preparation Time : 10 mins | Cooking Time : 15 minsServes :
Recipe Category: Curry | Recipe Cuisine: India
Mushroom - 250 gms
Onion -1(small) 
Tomato -1(small) 
Capsicum - 1/2 of medium size
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp

Cut the onion, capsicum & mushroom into thin slices and tomato into small pieces. Grind the ingredients listed under "To grind" into smooth paste.Heat the kadai with oil,add the cinnamon,cloves and cardamom, fry it for 30 secs.Add the onions & curry leaves, saute till it becomes translucent, add the ginger garlic paste and saute till the raw smell leaves,then add mushroom & capsicum.Give a quick stir and add the tomatoes, mix well and close the kadai with lid, the moisture from the mushroom and tomatoes is enough to cook the mushroom.Add the turmeric , red chili powder & salt, mix well and then add the coconut paste .Add enough water(i used the washed mixie jar water), bring into boil and keep it in low smell until the raw smell of the masala leaves.Switch off the flame and finally garnish with coriander leaves.Serve it with chapathi or any pulao.
  • If you prefer extra flavor, add the 1/2 tsp of garam masala at the end.
  • Instead of ginger garlic paste, add the finely chopped ginger & garlic .
  • Mushroom itself leaves lot of water, so add water if required.
  • Coconut oil gives great flavor,but you can use normal vegetable oil too.
