How to Make Matar Mushroom Recipe

Mildly spiced gravy with a luscious texture and silky consistency, having the flavor and bite of mushrooms and peas, cooked to perfection, is matar mushroom. Matar mushroom recipe is a must-try with fresh peas and mushrooms. In India, white button mushrooms are available in the local vegetable markets during winters. Fresh peas are in abundance during this season. There is no reason for me to not make the very delectable mutter mushroom.

Mushroom Matar can be served with simple tawa chapati. In fact, I love serving it with hot chapatis, without any ghee/butter. It can be prepared for weekend special meals or ever for parties. Matar mushroom gravy is not too spicy as the mushroom curry. But it is absolutely delish to be loved by all.

Mushroom Matar Recipe- Ingredients required

Mushrooms: I have access to white button mushrooms and therefore I use these for all my mushroom recipes including the recipe of matar mushroom. These should be cleaned properly. Here you can find how to clean mushrooms?

Peas/Matar: Fresh peas work best for mutter mushroom recipes. However, you can also try it with good quality frozen peas.

Onion, tomatoes, yogurt, and cream: Very scrumptious gravy is prepared for the mushroom matar recipe which has the base of onions, tomatoes cream, and yogurt i.e. dahi. For the cream, I have used malai. You can use the readymade heavy cream available in the market. The yogurt should be fresh and not at all tangy. Likewise, try and use the non-tangy variety of tomatoes for this mushroom mutter recipe.

Spices: This mushroom mutter masala is mildly spiced with the very basic and minimal turmeric powder, red chili powder, coriander powder, and salt. That’s it! No garam masala or amchur has been added.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
