Mushroom with peas is a great side dish consisting of mushrooms and peas in a spiced tomato curry with a touch of fenugreek leaves.

Serves 2 to 4

Mushroom with PeasIngredients:

  • 2 cups of sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup green peas
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon shredded ginger
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fenugreek leaves or dry fenugreek leaves (also known as kastoori mathi)
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds (jeera)
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric (haldi)
  • 2 teaspoons coriander powder (dhaniya)
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper (adjust to taste)
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt (adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice (optional)
  • 1 finally chopped green chili (optional)

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan on medium high heat. Test the heat by adding one cumin seed to the oil. If the cumin seed cracks right away, the oil is ready.
  2. Add the cumin seeds. As cumin seeds crack add turmeric. Stir-fry for a few seconds.
  3. Add tomatoes, ginger, salt, coriander, and chili powder. Cook until the tomatoes are soft and reduce to half.
  4. Add mushrooms, and peas. After coming to a boil reduce the heat to medium.
  5. Add fenugreek leaves after mushrooms have cooked half the way about 4 minutes.
  6. Cook until mushrooms and peas are tender. Close the heat.
  7. Add lemon juice and green chili if you like. Serve hot.

Notes:

  1. Dicing the tomatoes will give a different texture to the curry then tomato puree.
  2. Fenugreek leaves can be replaced with chopped cilantro (hara dhaniya).
  3. To add heat to this dish, garnish with finely chopped green chilies.

  12. Mrs.Manjula,

    First, I would like to say that I love your website. I’ve cooked many things from it already and I’m always looking at your recipes for more ideas for dinner.
    As for this recipe, are you using raw green peas? Or can you just use frozen green peas from the grocery store?

    Thanks,

    Richard

  15. Hi Manjula Aunty,

    Thanks for th delicious things tht you show. I try most of them andlove it so much.
    I also trid making jalebis and rasgullas, Jalebis turned out amazing, though rasgullas failed…though all the water was squeezed ot of paneer

    thank so much love ya deepti

    1. Hi Deepti,
      Many things can go wrong but make sure when you are separating the milk do not use extra lemon juice it makes the paneer very dry in texture and do knead the dough enough to make soft dough.

  16. Thank you for this very simple and nice recipe Manjula ji, prepared it just now, it came out very well. will try more recipes from your website. your efforts much appreciated.

  17. Made this just now! it’s delicious! and I will serve it as the main dish with basmati rice, and a side of your carrot pickle tonight. The spices are very light and allow the mushrooms and peas to take center stage, while adding to their charm.

  18. Hi Manjula,
    This curry looks great and simple to cook…the curry goes with anything.. I look your website and i love all your recipes too.. Thanks for sharing them…

  19. Dear Mrs. Jain,

    Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipes. I am repeating my question regarding the recipe with mushroom and peas since I want to prepare this dish again.

    I have heard that mushrooms can get tough if washed, so I just wipe them with a damp paper towel. Do you recommend washing mushrooms, even if they are sold in sliced form? Also, what variety of mushrooms can be used for this recipe?

    Thank you in advance for your time and help.

    Best regards,
    Avanti

    1. You may wash and should wash mushroom by placing them under the running water of your kitchen sink for several seconds. This is the best way to remove any dirt.

      Dry them gently with a towel and continue with the recipe. This will NOT make the mushrooms tough.

      Buy whole mushrooms rather than pre-sliced. The whole mushrooms keep their flavor better. Wash, dry and slice at home.

      You can use the common white or brown mushrooms sold in grocery stores (the fresh ones, not from a can). If you have a preference for another mushroom type, then use that. It will not have a bad effect on the recipe to use different mushrooms.

      1. Hi Jaya,

        Thanks for your take on this subject. However, since my question is addressed to the author of these recipes, I still hope to receive a reply from her.

        Best regards,

      1. Dear Mrs. Jain,

        Thank you very much for your reply.

        Looking forward to your next recipe.

        Best regards,

    2. I sometimes use shetake mushrooms…i discard the stem as it’s hard and cut the mushroom into 4 pieces…it gives a nice chewy flavour similar to the sea food…

  21. This is a fantastic recipe, but for my taste, it was a little too spicy. So instead of adding the lemon juice and green chilli at the end, I instead added in some skim milk, which gave it some gravy, richness and turned down the heat a bit. It was great!

  22. hi Manjulaji
    looking forward to trying this in the uk . I need to make this and reheat the next day. Do you know if this is likely to be ok ? Would be intersted to know if there are any other vegetable curries you would recommend from your recipes for reheating. Thank you for your time :)

  23. hi manjula aunty,
    i always did Channa Curry with Onions.. Your recipe without onions are double the taste..

    You are an amazing cook and a teacher!

  24. Hello Manjula,

    I am a first time user of your recipe for mushroom with peas. I noticed that mine however has an interesting flavor though, it tastes too bitter. I was wondering since I used methi powder instead of the dry fenugreek leaves if that makes a difference with this recipe. Is it necessary for me to use the dry fenugreek leaves instead? I find the methi powder a little too overpowering for my taste but not sure if that is how the dish should turn out.

  25. I like to try recipes from all over the world. For several years I have been cooking a recipe for aloo gobi which I learned from the dvd “Bend it Like Beckham.” (A funny place to learn cooking. Their version had tomatoes.) I think this recipe sounds good too. Its not very convenient for me to go buy some of the spices, so I make do without. I do love the smell of cumin seeds cooking, I wish I had some.

  26. Hello, Manjulaji. Thank you for this simple, yet tasty recipe. Your site is so wonderful and you teach so well. Thank you.

    Also, congratulations on the addition to your family. May all be happy and healthy.

  27. Hello Auntieji
    I note that you do not use any onion in your recipies for tarka, why is this?
    I always make dishes that need tarka with onions as tradionally done?

  28. hi manjulaji
    your recipe sounds good.i prepare recipes like mushroom manchuria,punjabi style mushroomcurry,chinese mushroom wraps,mushroom and panner curry,but never heard of mushroom and green peas curry.should try it.
    thanks
