Spicy Mushroom Curry

Mushroom was not eaten by my family before marraige as it was considered non-vegetarian, i always loved to taste mushroom curry with my friends outside, but after marraige my hubby encouraged me to cook mushroom at home so i started browsing the net and came across this recipe.

I tried it a couple of times and everybody liked it specially my hubby. This recipe contains a lot of ingredients which made me feel it is very complicated but it wasnt difficult. The special flavor of this curry is the tempering made with crushed garlic,pepper and jeera. This curry can be had with rice or rotis.

Try it out and you wouldnt be disappointed !!


250gm chopped mushroom (lengthwise)
1 cup chopped onions
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp garlic ginger paste
2 chopped chillis

1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp oil
