I am sure you will be surprised like me with this super tasty chettinad mushroom masala recipe and sure it is sure a heart winner to me. Here is how to make this spicy chettinad mushroom masala.

4. Heat a kadai with oil and add the items to temper. Once Saute for a minute.Then  add small onions along with ginger garlic paste & fry it well for 5 minutes.
5. Once the small onions becomes brown here and there, add tomatoes in and fry it till turns mushy and soft. Once tomatoes become soft, add the ground chettinad masala paste and turmeric powder. I forgot to add curry leaves while tempering. So added at this stage. Fry the masala until the raw smell leaves from the masala. It may take 5 minutes.

6. Then add the cleaned mushroom pieces and mix everything. At one point in time, mushroom will start leave out water.
7. At that stage add 1/4 cup of water and boil the gravy in medium flame until the mushroom gets cooked and the curry becomes little thick. Once everything comes together, switch off the flame. Garnish with corainder leaves.

Serve the chettinad mushroom with jeera rice or chapati/phulka. Tastes delicious !
  • Small onions works the best for this recipe. Hence I recommend to use small onions instead of big ones.
  • Dry roast everything in low flame while preparing the chettinad masala. This is the key to make a tasty chettinad mushroom masala.
  • This is a spicy gravy with the above mentioned ingredients. Reduce the amount of pepper if you wish a less spicy version.
