Mushroom Capsicum Gravy

Mushrooms are my favourite.Whatever you cook with it tastes wonderful.And it cooks so fast and its more healthy and yummy too.This  dish is  the combination of mushrooms with exotic spices marinated to give a wonderful  aroma.The fresh cream added to this gives a rich creamy taste.And capsicum blends with the masala and makes it more delicious.Go ahead and try this and let me know your views…



Mushroom – 300 gms

Capsicum -  1 chopped

Onion  - 1 pureed

Tomato – 1  pureed

Fresh cream – 2 tsp (otional)

Oil – 3 tsp


For Marination

Ginger garlic paste – 1 tsp

Chilli powder / Milagai Thool – 1 tsp

Coriander powder / Kothamalli thool – 1 tsp

Turmeric powder / Manjal Thool – 1/2 tsp

Garam masala powder – 1/2 tsp

Kasoorimethi leaves – 1 tsp

Curd –   2 tsp

Marinate the sliced mushrooms with all the ingredients given under marination.Leave it for atleast 30 mins.


100_1698 100_1700


Heat oil in a kadai and add the onion and tomato puree and fry till the raw smell goes off.




Add the marinated mushroom and saute. Add  half cup water and let the mushrooms cook and the masala smell goes off.


Now add the capsicum and mix well and Keep in medium flame and allow to boil for 5 more mins .Check the seasoning (We added salt in marination so add only if required).


Add the fresh cream and chopped  coriander leaves and give a good mix and switch off the flame.

This goes well with roti /Naan or even with pulao.




I used red capsicum You can use any colour you want.Capsicum will cook fast so  we are adding it little later .Take care not  to overcook  the capsicum ,if it remains crunchy it will enhance the taste.
