mushroom sabzi recipe with step by step photos. a simple and delicious goan style mushroom bhaji recipe made with fresh coconut and spices paste.

mushroom masala recipe

this mushroom dry curry is one of those recipes that my mom used to make. the recipe used to be originally made with clams. though, i make them with mushrooms. thus this is a vegetarian version of the goan tisryo masala. i have used button mushrooms for this recipe but you can also use portobello or cremini mushrooms.

the mushroom sabzi tastes very good and is slightly spicy. apart from the spice and heat in the recipe coming from red chilies, there is also a slight sour taste which comes from kokam (garcinia indica). if you don’t have kokams then just add tamarind. (i have mentioned the method in the notes section of the recipe card and also in the step by step pics).

onions are used twice in this mushroom recipe. first time onions are added in the ground spice paste. second time onions are sauteed with mushrooms. this is a semi dry curry recipe. few more variations you can make are:

this mushroom sabzi tastes good with chapati, rice and even toasted bread. or you can serve mushrooms bhaji as a side dish with khichdi, pulao, dal-rice, sambar-rice or even as a quick meal with chapatis.

preparing the coconut+spice paste

  2. dry grind the mixture coarsely. don't add water while grinding as we need a thick, coarse paste.
  3. now add 1 cup of fresh grated coconut and dry grind again. the reason for adding coconut and grinding twice is we need a thick paste without water. hence first we grind the spices and then grind the coconut along the spice paste.
  4. the paste has to be coarse and thick.

  1. I made this yesterday and it turned out so good. Thanks for the amazing recipe.

    • Welcome Mini. Glad to know this.

  2. Hi Dassana, I made this Yesterday and it was very tasty 🙂 Thank you.
    Could you please confirm if the Coconut used in the Recipe is of 1cup?
    Because i followed all the measurements correctly but got more gravy unlike yours.

    • welcome mohana. it is 1 cup grated coconut. the gravy could be due to the mushrooms releasing a lot of water. if you would have cooked more, the water would have reduced and you would have got a semi dry gravy.

  3. Hi, I’m new to cooking and I’ve been following your recipes for a while now! I made this yesterday and I loved it. It was a little too spicy for my dad, I’ll be a little more stingy with the black pepper next time. Thanks for sharing your recipes and pictures 🙂

    • thanks janhavi for positive views, yes this mushroom sabzi recipe is spicy. you can alter the spices as per your taste and preference and you are welcome.
