  • Add the onions, ginger and garlic to a food processor and puree until smooth. Set aside for now.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a saute pan over medium heat.
  • Next, add the sliced mushrooms and saute for 7-8 minutes or until the mushrooms soften. Set the mushrooms and water they release aside in a bowl.
  • Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in the saute pan.
  • Add the blended onion mixture that you set aside earlier and then saute for 10 minutes, or until the onions are cooked through.
  • Add the spices and stir for 30 seconds to help toast the spices. Then pour in the tomato puree and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in the peas, kasoori methi, mushrooms, and coconut cream. Stir until the cream completely dissolves.
  • Garnish with cilantro and serve.


*You can scoop the coconut cream from the top of a can of refrigerated full-fat unsweetened coconut milk.
