DHINGRI MATAR RECIPE

{ Mushroom and green peas in a spicy tomato gravy }
Serves 3


Ingredients:

1 tbsp oil
½ tsp cumin seeds / jeera
1/8 tsp fennel seeds / saunf
1 big onion, chopped
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
½ cup tomato puree
¼ tsp turmeric powder
½ tsp red chilly powder
1 tsp coriander powder
¼ tsp crushed black pepper
10-12 button mushrooms, quartered
½ cup green peas
8 cashewnuts, powdered
¼ tsp garam masala
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves to garnish

Method:

1. In a kadai, heat oil and add cumin and fennel seeds. Once it sizzles, add onions and saute till they turn golden.

2. Then add ginger-garlic paste and fry for 2-3 minutes or until raw smell goes.

3. Add the tomato puree and fry for 2 minutes. Then add turmeric powder, red chilly powder, coriander powder, crushed black pepper and fry for a minute.

4. Cover and cook for 5- minutes or till the tomatoes and spices have cooked well.

5. Add the mushrooms and saute for 2 minutes. Then add the green peas, powdered cashews, ½ cup water, salt and mix well.

6. Cover and cook in medium heat until the mushrooms have cooked, about 4-5 minutes. Mushrooms will leave water, so there is no need to add more water.

7. Once the mushrooms have cooked, add garam masala and coriander leaves. Remove from heat

Notes and Tips
  • If using fresh green peas, cook them first and add to the curry.
