Mushroom Capsicum Masala

Recently, Mushroom has become my daughter's favorite. Thank God for that. Mushroom is one of healthiest vegetable available. It has all the possible goodness from anti-oxidants till anti-cancer properties. I have tried Paneer-Mushroom masala before and now I have tried Mushroom and capsicum combo.
It's very easy-to-make and can be made within 30 minutes and perfect side dish with roti or rice or Pulao.
Here is the recipe :
Ingredients :
Mushroom : about 15(thinly sliced)
Capsicum/bell pepper : 2 (cut into cubes/long strips)
Onion : 2(finely chopped)
Ginger-garlic paste : 2 tblsp.
Tomato Puree : 2-3 tblsp./2 tomatoes finely chopped
Turmeric powder : 2 -3 tsp.
Red chilli powder : 2 tsp.(as per taste)
Coriander powder : 2 tsp.
Garam Masala Powder : 2 tsp.
Kasuri Methi(dry fenugreek leaves) : 1 tblsp.
Oil : 2 tblsp.
Salt to taste
Cardamom - 3, Cinnamon stick - 1, Cloves -4, bay leaf - 1
Fresh coriander leaves for garnishing

Method :
  • Heat oil in a pan, temper with bay leaf, cardamom, cinnamon and cloves, when they start to crackle, add chopped onion. Fry, stirring frequently, until onions get transparent. Add ginger-garlic paste, mushroom and capsicum and stir-fry together for 2-3 minutes. 
  • Add tomato puree or chopped tomatoes. cook in medium flame for 2 minutes or until fresh tomatoes get mushy. Add turmeric, red chilli and coriander powder and 1/3 cup hot water. Mix well and cook until oil seperates. Finally add garam masala powder and kasuri methi. 
  • Further cook for another 2 minutes. Add 1/2 cup hot water to make a thick gravy, season with salt and cook covered in medium flame. 
  • When gravy thickens, remove from heat and garnish with fresh coriander leaves.
Enjoy with any Indian flatbread, like chapati, naan or even with rice or Pulao................
