Mushroom masala is one of my favorite Indian vegetarian curries and can be equally enjoyed with rice or roti. This is one of the most ordered dishes in any Indian restaurants too!
If I convert to a vegetarian someday, I would survive on mushrooms and I have no doubt about it! And this mushroom masala would be one of the most exploited dishes in our house then. I am simply in love with button mushrooms; their texture, taste, flavors everything captivate me and I can simply live on any mushroom recipe. This mushroom masala is one typical Indian curry with beautiful aroma. Mushrooms having sponge-like texture soak up the flavors of the spices beautifully and makes this mushroom masala a delicious dish to enjoy with roti, rice, naan, paratha or anything whatsoever.
Mushroom is quite a new entrant in Indian cuisine. I could recall having mushrooms only once or twice during my childhood. My mom wasn’t sure how to make it and non-existence of something like YouTube or food blogs wasn’t helpful either. It’s when I started cooking on my own that I started experimenting with new ingredients, mushroom being one of them and I fell in love with it from the very first time I tried it. This mushroom masala has now become one of the regular curries which I make at home for our regular meals.
