palak mushroom recipe, how to make palak mushroom curry

palak mushroom

palak mushroom curry recipe – a healthy curry recipe made with spinach and mushrooms. the combination of mushroom and palak goes very well for us as we are fond of both palak and mushrooms.

i love to include greens in my diet. fenugreek, spinach and amaranth are my favorite greens to experiment. i try various combination of these greens with other vegetables like aloo methi, aloo palak, palak saagmethi mushroom, red amaranth sambar or even methi chole or palak chole.

palak mushroom is a delicious as well as an easy recipe to make. it is like having palak paneer and we have just replaced paneer with mushroom.

this recipe goes well with roti, naan or rice. here i served with palak mushroom with homemade whole wheat naans.

    Hi Dassana,
    Simply delicious is the word that comes to my mind right now after trying this recipe just now. This is my 6th attempt on a different recipe and as I mentioned in my earlier feedback 100/100.
    Keep up the good work.

    Thanks

    Hi. I tried this yesterday, it was awesome. I didn’t blanch the spinach though, I pureed it raw. Also while adding the flour, I made a medium thick paste of the chickpea flour in small amount of water and added this paste in the boiling gravy while continuously stirring. This helps in eliminating formation of lumps of the flour. Keep it up!

      thanks akansha. the way you made the paste, can also be done. if the gram flour is sprinkled all over the curry, then the lumps are not formed. if just sprinkled in one spot or place, then lumps may form.
