Mushroom Capsicum Kurma, How To Make Mushroom Capsicum Kurma

          Mushroom is another vegetable which I pick up once a week or 10 days, it's so easy to cook and goes very well in curries, stir-fries and pilafs/briyanis and it tastes good either alone or in combination with other vegetables. For today's dish, I have paired it up with capsicum and I have made a white kurma with it. This curry is rich, delicious and tastes great with rotis, naans, dosas or as a side to pilafs and briyanis. If you are someone who likes mushrooms, then give this dish a try..

Need To Have

  • Button Mushrooms - 200gms, cleaned and sliced
  • Capsicum - 2 small ones, chopped
  • Cinnamon - 1" piece
  • Green Cardamom - 2
  • Cloves - 2
  • Coriander Powder - 2 teaspoons
  • Fennel Seed Powder - 1 teaspoon
  • Curd/Yogurt - 3 tablespoons

          Grind together all the ingredients given under ' to grind '  with a little water, remove  and keep.

          Heat some oil, add the cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom, when it starts popping, add the ground paste and saute for 2 minutes.

          Add the coriander powder, fennel seeds powder and the curd and saute well for 5 to 7 minutes till the raw smell goes away. Then add the capsicum and saute for a minute.

The green chillies that I had were really spicy, so 2 was enough, add chillies according to your spice level, but don't add red chilly powder later, that'll change the color of the kurma.
