As the sacred month of Kartik is going on, I have gone full time vegetarian. Being vegetarian for a full month with a food lover like Tanmaya is tough. He cannot eat the same dish twice the same week. So I have to always cook something different. Even though I have to use the same vegetables I have to add some different spices for a new flavor.
So here goes a variation with mushroom.
- Mushroom: 2 cups cut into half
- potato: 1 medium cut into cubes
- Tomato : 1 medium chopped
- Green Chili: 2 sliced
- Garlic 4 cloves
- Cumin: 1tsp
- Dry Red Chili: 2
- Kastoori Methi: 2 tsp
- Salt: as per taste
- Turmeric Powder: 1 tsp
- Chili Powder: 1 tsp
- Coriander Powder: 1 tsp
- oil: 4 tsp
in a pan heat 1 tsp of oil and fry the mushroom till the water dries up.
Remove it from the pan. Heat another tbsp of oil and fry the potatoes.
Remove the potatoes from the heat.
Crush the garlic, cumin and red chili together.
Heat rest of the oil in a pan, add the crushed garlic, cumin and red chili and fry till the garlic turns golden. Add the kastoori methi and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes. A pinch of salt , turmeric and chili powder, cover and cook till the tomatoes are mushy.
Remove the lid and add the coriander powder, green chili and cook the masala till all the raw smell is gone and oil is released.
Add the fried mushroom and potatoes to the masala and fry for 2-3 mins. Add 1/4 cup of water cover and cook till potatoes are cooked through. remove the lid and fry till the desired consistency is achieved.
Enjoy this with hot chapati, roti and paratha.
Till then Happy Blogging
