Kadai Mushroom Dry

Kadai Mushroom Dry is my today's blog post. This dish does not have gravy similar to Kadai Paneer or Kadai Chicken, so I have named this as Kadai Mushroom Dry.However, Kadai Mushroom Dry goes well with roti, paratha, naan or fried rice. I saw this dish in a Bengali Lifestyle Magazine and immediately prepared it. Kadai Mushroom Dry can be prepared with simple ingredients and tastes really good. Here is the recipe for you.

Kadai Mushroom Dry

Button Mushroom - 200 gms
Capsicum - 1 , cut into blocks
Tomato - 2, cut into blocks
Onion - 2 big, cut into blocks
Ginger Paste - 2 teaspoon
Kasoori Methi - 2 teaspoon
Garlic - 10 cloves, chopped
Green Chilli - 2, finely chopped 
Dry Red Chilli - 1
Vinegar - 2 teaspoon
 Ginger -  1 teaspoon, cut into Julienne 

Refined oil - 2 tablespoon
At first, wash the mushrooms in salted warm water. Then wip them with kitchen towel and cut into halves. Now heat oil in wok and add dry red chilli. Next add onions & chopped garlic and after few minutes add chopped green chilli, capsicum, tomato, ginger paste, and salt as per taste. Put the gas on high flame and stir well. Add kasoori methi (dry methi leaves) and mushrooms. After few minutes add vinegar and switch off gas when it turns brown. Garnish with ginger cut into julienne.
