Recipe for Creamy Spiced Mushrooms Curry:This recipe is adapted from the book “200 Curries ” by Sunil Vijayakar. This cook book was bought long back and found its way out of the shelf today. I find it a little difficult to follow a recipe to the T . I prefer to cook and enjoy and experiment with flavors.I have tweaked in a little to suit our palate. There are many curry recipes that are so simple and flavorful.I am amazed by the curry varieties in this cookbook.Check out Kadamba Dosai from Kalyani .

Add water to blend the onion , garlic ,ginger and curry powder mix if needed. I did not add as the onions had enough water content. You can make coriander and fresh green chilli paste and store in the refrigerator. Use when needed. Adds a nice flavor and texture to the dish. I have used home made curry powder. You can use store bought Ones too. The measurements given here is as per my family’s palate. It is mildly Spicy. Increase or decrease the spice as per your tolerance .
