Creamy mushroom & green peas curry/ Mushroom Matar Masala
This creamy mushroom & green peas curry is different from regular mushroom matar masala with a variation. I have prepared the gravy with puree of sauteed mushroom and onions. You can take the creamy mushroom soup that recipe i have shared in my blog here. Lets make this creamy mushroom and green peas curry. In regular mushroom matar masala mushroom and green peas are cooked in Indian red curry paste (recipe here!)
