Mushroom Masala Roast

Mushrooms are a strict no-no for the huss. He says that he finds it similar to rubber and hence whenever I pick-up a packet of button mushrooms during our grocery shopping asks me to return the packet to the shelves.
I am not a big fan of mushrooms either. Paneer / Mushroom and you could find me sticking to dear paneer. But at times I have this unusual urge to have mushrooms for rotis / chapathis. So this time giving no heed to his words, I went ahead and bought a pack of mushrooms. One half was made into mushroom masala and the other half was set aside for Kadai mushroom. Both turned out well and the huss was impressed with the flavors.

~*What U Need*~
Onions(medium) -2
Tomatoes - 1
Cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
Ginger-garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder - 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Cumin powder - 1/4 tsp
Capsicum(chopped into small cubes) - a handful
Mushrooms(cubed) - half packet
Coriander leaves
Salt - to taste

How I Made it:
Heat oil in a kadai. Add cumin seeds and when spluttered, add finely chopped onions and fry till translucent. Add ginger-garlic paste and fry till brown. Now add in finely chopped tomatoes and fry till the oil separates and everything turns mushy. Now add the powders (chilli, corainder and cumin) & salt and fry till the raw smell goes off. Add the capsicum and saute for 5 seconds. Add the mushrooms, give a stir till the masala coats the mushrooms and close with a lid.
After 5 mins, you will see the mushrooms starting to shrink and giving out water. Saute till the water evaporates and the mushrooms have cooked to softness. Add chopped coriander leaves and give a stir.

Serve with chapathis / pulao.

So thats it Folks...
