Chettinad Mushroom Masala

Yep,I got my charger finally and more over I didnt cook anything new for a while...We are so much into regular comfort food.Its summer here,so i been dragged out of the house most of the time because its a sunny day...Lol,I have seen enough sunny days in my life.Since its summer ,there are farmers market and carnivals during weekends..DH brought a bag of mushrooms and it was so fresh..I never cooked mushrooms before for my family.The dish came out so good,so i thought i can blog it..

So here it is

Onion-1 cup,Sliced
Capsicum-1 cup,Sliced
Spinach or Any Green leaves-1 cup
Mushroom,Sliced-1 cup
Ginger garlic paste-1 tbsp
Coriander powder-2 tsps
Turmeric powder-half tsp
Salt to taste 
Oil to shallow fry

Chettinad masala powder
Fennel seeds-1 tsp
Cumin seeds-1 tsp
Star anise-1
Kasi pasi-1 tsp
Pepper-1 to 2 tsp


1.Dry roast all the masala ingredients ,cool it and grind to fine powder

2.Heat the pan,add the oil ,onion and saute till it turns pink
3.Add sliced capsicum ,then add bunch of spinach or any mixed green leaves
4.When all the vegetables are cooked,add ginger garlic paste and saute for a minute
5.Add the mushroom,coriander salt and the masala powder 
6.Close the lid and cook for two minutes and saute again for a minute.

Mushroom takes 2-3 minutes to cook and if you over cook,it turns hard..

Happy Cooking
