Matter Mushroom #sikandalouscuisine

While growing up I recall  my mother's constant worry was what to give vegetarians at parties ! Those were simpler days , one or if there were two non veg items then that would rock the table , however vegetarians would be stuck with Makhani Dal and Paneer in various ' shahi ' forms. Then Mushrooms happened and life became easy . Veggies got yet another ' exotic ' option and my mom a breather ! Here is our full on Punju Mattar Mushroom !
200 Grams Mushrooms - Cut to size , not too small ( remember guests had to see them ! )
300 Grams of Shelled Peas.
1/2 Cup Liquidized Tomatoes.
1/2 Cup Grated Onions - fry till brown and grind to paste.
1 Teaspoon Grated Ginger.
1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Paste.
1/2 Teaspoon Ajwain.
2-3 Black Ilachi.
1 Tej Putta
4-5 Green Cardamon / Ilachi.
1" Stuck Cinnamon.
1 Teaspoon Garam Masala.
1/2 Teaspoon Haldi Powder.
1 tablespoon Dhania Powder.
Chilies & Salt To Taste .
1 Teaspoon Kasoori Methi.
2 Tablespoons Grated Khoya ( I avoid )
2 Tablespoon Ghee.
Heat ghee , add tej putta , cardamons and cinnamon along with ajwain and cook 30-40 seconds till aromatic . Add ginger and garlic , and then tip in tomato puree.Reduce heat and cook covered till oil separates ,then along with some water add dhania powder , haldi chilies and salt , in go the peas and saute peas 5-6 minutes , till nearly done.

At this stage add onion paste , mushrooms , kasoori methi and khoya - increase heat to high , saute 2-3 minutes only , pour hot water to give you the desired gravy .Cook 2-3 minutes for flavors to marry . Stir in garam masala , remove from heat and serve garnished with dhania leaves. Party dish for veggies ready !
