mushroom curry recipe, how to make punjabi mushroom masala recipe

mushroom curry recipe with step by step pics – delicious punjabi style mushroom masala curry recipe. this is an easy recipe of white button mushrooms in an onion-tomato based medium spiced gravy.

i use this mushroom gravy recipe as base for making mushroom masala or paneer masala. i also make veg or paneer bhuna masala gravy with some tweaking of this recipe.

again like most of my recipes, this one too is easy to prepare. there is some prep work like making onion paste and tomato puree, which can be easily done in a good blender or mixer-grinder. fresh yogurt/curd is also added in this recipe. if you do not have curd, then just skip it.

there is no thick creamy gravy in this recipe, but a medium consistency gravy. one that can be easily poured on steamed rice or can also be had with chapatis or parathas.

serve punjabi mushroom curry with steamed rice, jeera rice or veg pulao. this mushroom gravy also goes very well as a side gravy dish with biryanis. you can also have the curry with bread or pav (bread rolls).
