Mushrooms – To make this curry, we will need 200 grams of button mushrooms. We need to wash mushrooms to get rid of dirt and chop them into bite-size pieces.

Vegetables – To make the base masala for this gravy, we will need onions that we will cook and blend into a paste. We will also need finely chopped tomatoes to make the curry.

Spices & Herbs – Spices enhance the taste of this mushroom masala, we will need ginger, garlic, and green chillies along with some powdered spices like coriander powder, gram masala powder, red chilli powder, and turmeric powder.

Seasonings – We will season this curry with salt.

Oil – We will require 4 tablespoons of oil to cook.


Instead of mushrooms, you can add other vegetables like green peas, green beans, carrots, potatoes, and babycorns or you can also add paneer or tofu.

To make it more rich and creamy, you can add a tablespoon of cashew paste or cream.

Serving Suggestions

This creamy mushroom masala is best served with chapati or tava paratha. It also tastes good with jeera rice or vegetable pulao (pilaf).

This curry stays good for 2-3 days in the refrigerator. Reheat before serving.
