Mushroom Matar Masala-Mushroom Green Peas Gravy Recipe-Peas Mushroom Curry


Mushroom Matar Masala is a combination of mushrooms and green peas cooked together using freshly ground spices and different pastes to get the gravy. For getting gravy we can use tomato paste, cashew paste, poppy seeds paste, groundnut paste etc. I used tomato paste with a hint of fresh cream.

Mushrooms are a good source of fiber, protien, Vitamin C, D, B6 and B12. They are also cholestrol-free. Whereas green peas is a good source of Vitamins B1, B2, B6, C and K. This mushroom gravy tastes better with chapathi, paratha, naan or any flavoured rice. I served it with Jeera Rice.

Ingredients:


1. Green Peas - 1/2 cup

5. Ginger garlic paste - 1/4 tsp
