Ingredients

For the mushrooms

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 250 grams mushrooms sliced
  • 1 small bell pepper/capsicum chopped
  • Salt to taste

For the makhani gravy

  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • 4 cloves garlic sliced
  • 1 piece of ginger sliced
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 green chillies chopped
  • 1 – 1 ½ teaspoon red chilli powder
  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric
  • Salt to taste
  • ¾ can 28 oz crushed tomatoes
  • 2 - 3 tablespoon cream
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • Coriander leaves for garnish

Instructions

For the mushrooms

  • In small frying pan, heat butter and let it melt.
  • Once the butter melts, add the mushrooms and saute till the mushrooms are light brown. Season with salt, add the bell pepper/capsicum and saute for another minute or so. Turn off heat and set aside.
  • Heat oil in a wok or large frying pan (with deep sides). Saute ginger and garlic till light brown, and then add the onions.
  • Once the onions are light golden, add green chilies followed by spices (red chili powder, turmeric and salt).
  • Saute for a minute and then add the crushed tomatoes, along with about ½ cup of water. Cook for about 5 minutes till the oil starts releasing from the edges.
  • Pour the tomato mixture into a blender and puree till smooth.
  • Pour the tomato puree back into the pan, and bring it to a low simmer. Add the cream and butter.
  • Once the butter is melted, add chopped capsicums and sliced mushrooms. Allow to cook for about 2 minutes, and then turn off the heat.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves and cream or butter. Serve with steamed rice or naan.

Notes

  1. Bell pepper/capsicum can be skipped from this recipe, but then the quantity of mushrooms should be increased.
  2. Instead of capsicum/bell pepper other vegetables like peas can be substituted in this dish.
