Preparation Time : 10 minutes
Cooking Time : 20 minutes
Serves : 4
Oyster Mushrooms – 250 gm ( Clean them with chilled water and then wipe dry using kitchen towel)
Potato – 1 ( Remove the skin and cut in small cube’s)
Onion – 1 big ( finely chopped)
Garlic cloves – 10
Tomato – 1 big ( chopped)
Red chilli powder – 2 tsp
Turmeric powder – 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Garam Masala powder – 1 tsp
Mustard Oil – 4 tbsp
Water as required ( approx 1 cup)
Coriander leaves – chopped finely ( for garnishing optional)
First chop the mushrooms into slightly bigger pieces ( as this will ensure the mushrooms will retain their slightly crunchiness even after cooking)
Prepare a masala by grinding half of the chopped onions, tomatoes and the garlics.
Take a deep bottomed pan and pour 2 tbsp of oil in it. Heat the oil and add the potato cubes, salt and half tsp of turmeric powder. Fry the potatoes till they are slightly fried but over fried. Then add the mushrooms and keep frying in a high flame till the mushrooms are half cooked.
Then remove the fried potatoes and mushrooms from the kadhai and keep them aside in the same bowl which you are going to use for serving the curry. Then in the same pan add the rest 2 tbsp of oil and the rest chopped onions and keep frying till the onions turns translucent and attain a slightly golden color. Then add the already prepared garlic masala, salt, half tsp of turmeric powder and the chilli powder. Add a tbsp of water while the masala is getting cooked to stop burning the masala. Keep sauting the masala till the masala is completely cooked and you can start seeing oil peeping out of the masala. Then add the fried potatoes mushrooms and mix well. Then add one cup of hot water and mix again. Then cover the pan and simmer the curry in a low flame for 10 minutes.
Then remove the cover ,check the consistency of the curry and taste the salt too. Add extra water or salt if required. Add the garam masala and cover again.
Before serving heat the curry again and garish with fresh coriander leaves. Enjoy this simple yet tasty curry with a tangy garlic flavour with chapati or rice.
