Mushroom badshah

Preparation time: 15 min | Cooking time: 30 min

I just happened to go over my recipe book and chicken moghlai caught my eyes. Unfortunately I didn't have any chicken at home and I replaced that with mushrooms :-). There is a slight change from the original and therefore gave a new name "Mushroom Badshah". It was really a mouth watering dish and hence the new name :-).

Green chillies(chopped)-2
Chilli powder-1/2tsp
Coriander powder-1/4tsp
Roasted cumin powder-1/4tsp
Kasuri methi-1/4tsp
Garam masala-1/4tsp
Turmeric powder-1/4tsp
Cashew nuts-10
Chopped coriander leaves for garnishing
Salt to taste

Heat oil in a pan and add the ginger & garlic, saute for sometime before adding the green chillies. After a while add the sliced onions and saute until they turn pink. Add coriander, turmeric, chilli powders and saute until they lose their raw smell. Add the sliced tomato and saute for about 5 minutes. Cool the mixture and grind it to a fine paste.

Heat a pan, add the mushrooms, the paste & salt. Cook until the mushrooms are done. In another pan heat the butter, add the cumin powder, kasuri methi(crushed) and garam masala. Mix it for a while and add the mushroom with the gravy to this. Cook until everything blends well. Finally add the cashew paste(soak nuts in water for 1/2 hour before grinding) and bring it to boil. Garnish with coriander leaves before serving.

This is a very good accompaniment with chappthis.
