The auspicious month of Kartik is about to be over. But Tanmaya had enough of his share of vegetarian and started complaining that I don't give him anything rich any more. So I decided to make some delicious mushroom curry. A delicious veg curry that goes well with rotis or rice, Chattu Tarkari or Mushroom Curry is easy to make and highly delicious.
Hereis the recipe for Chaatu Tarkari
- Fresh Mushrooms: 1 cup
- Potato: 1 medium cut into small cubes
- Onion: 1 small chopped finely
- Green Peas: 1/4 cup
- Ginger paste: 1/4 tsp
- Garlic paste: 1/2 tsp
- Tomato paste(puree): 1 cup
- Whipping Cream: 1/4 cup
- Red chilli powder: 1 tsp
- Turmeric powder: 1/2 tsp
- Coriander powder: 1/2 tbsp
- Cumin powder: 1/4 tbsp
- Chopped Coriander leaves
- Oil 4tsp
Clean the mushroom and cut them into halves.
Then soak them in turmeric water for 1/2hrs.
Squeeze the mushroom properly to drain out the water.
Take a pan & put 2tsp of oil and fry the mushrooms. As the mushrooms start oozing water add the cubed potatoes and fry, this way the potato would absorb all the wonderful taste of the mushroom.
Once all the water dries up, remove the mushrooms and potatoes.
After these have been fried, keep those aside.
Put 2tbs of in a pan .
Add onion along with a pinch of salt and let it cook till they turn translucent.
Add the red chili powder to it and cook till the raw smell is gone.
