Matar Mushroom recipe is very popular and healthy Punjabi main-course recipe which available in every Punjabi dhabas or restaurants. It’s a combination of two main ingredients mushrooms and green peas which cooked in onion tomatoes based gravy. You can serve this curry with rice, naan or chapati and garnished with fresh cream and green coriander leaves. For healthy version, I used par boiled green peas instead of fried peas. As Punjabi cuisines, curries are fully creamy and buttery. So you can fry the green peas along with mushroom in same oil.

Cook's Tip:
If you cook Indian food, you are bound to get turmeric stains on your clothes at one time or another. The good news is they're really easy to take out. Wash the stained clothes/kitchen linen immedeately in cool water and soap. Dry in the sun and the stain will fade to a very pale pink. Wash the article again and the stain will be gone!
Excess salt in any dish can be brought down by adding diced potatoes, tomatoes or a tsp. sugar or add some ball of dough its soak extra salt.
While using ginger and garlic paste in curries, always use garlic at 60% ratio and ginger at 40% as ginger is very strong and may make your dish sharp and pungent.
