Palak Mushroom Gravy

You will need:

  • 10 button mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp chicken masala powder( 1 tsp chilli powder + 1½ tsp coriander powder + 1 tsp cumin powder + ½ tsp garam masala powder)
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 dry red chillies
  • 1 red onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 tsp amchoor powder (You can substitute amchoor powder with ½ tomato too)
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • salt as needed

For spinach gravy:

  • 1 bunch spinach
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic
  • 1 tbsp chopped ginger
  • 3 green chillies
  • ½ tbsp oil

Step 1:

Heat oil in a pan and add ginger and garlic and saute it for a min. Now add the green chillies along with the spinach and close with a lid. Allow it to cook for 2 to 3 mins till the spinach is cooked. Allow it to cool and grind it to a fine paste without adding water. It should be a thick paste.

Step 2:

In the mean time heat another pan and add 2 tbsp oil. Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds and red chillies when the oil is hot and allow it to splutter. Not add the chopped onions and saute it for 4 mins. Then add the chopped mushroom, some salt and saute it along with onion till it turns golden brown color. Now add the masala powder and saute it for a min . (If u r adding tomato, you can add at this time.) Add the spinach paste along with amchoor powder. Allow it to cook for 2 or 3 mins. Check for salt and serve with roti, chapathi, kulcha. Enjoy!!!
