Tips to make perfect mushroom masala at home:

  1. While cleaning the mushroom clean it under slow running water or you can use a damp paper tissue to remove the dirt over it.
  2. Also, you can sprinkle some all purpose flour over it and then rinse it under water. This also helps in cleaning the mushrooms.
  3. I cut the mushroom in 4 parts but you can also slice it.
  4. While cooking the mushrooms always keep an eye on it so that it should not get overcooked or else it will not taste good.
  5. The water in which the mushrooms are cooked is full of flavors, so do not discard it. Use it while making the gravy.
  6. While cooking the cashew paste, it will take around 15-20 minutes but cook it till it is completely cooked and is not sticking to the sides of the pan.
  7. This mushroom gravy thickens further with the time.
  8. If the gravy thickens after some time, add little hot water to the gravy and reheat it.
  9. You can make the same gravy and instead of adding mushrooms, you can add paneer/cottage cheese or even you can add boiled vegetables. The gravy tastes awesome.
