    25 min

    Tasty Indian side dish to accompany an Indian banquet or good enough to eat as a main course with pilau rice. Delicately spiced, juicy mushrooms. Tastes just like the local Indian restaurant. Serves 2 as a side dish or 1 as a main with rice.

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. In a saucepan heat the oil and add the onion and fry until translucent and softened. Add the green chilli, garlic and dry spices and mix well, cook for another 2 minutes.
    2. Add the mushrooms, seasoning and tomato puree. Mix well to combine. Cook gently for 3 minutes.
    3. Add the water (some juices will escape from the mushrooms). Don't overdo the water, you can always add more.
    4. Simmer gently for 8-10 minutes. This dish is to be moist with juices but not too sloppy.
    5. Add the chopped coriander or parsley and mix in. Place in a serving dish and garnish with extra coriander or parsley.
