Kadhai Mushroom curry with capsicum and onions


I love Mushrooms. It is the meat for vegetarians with loads of umami in it. There is seriously no other veggie that provides that elusive 5th taste that our beloved MasterChef Australia judges talk about.
Btw, are you watching the 12th season? The back to win series with the new jury? I'm completely hooked on.

What is Kadhai Mushroom?


Kadhai is literal terms is an Indian wok or the little vessel you see in my photos. That is a kadhai. So Kadhai Mushroom just translates literally to mushroom cooked in a wok. But as a dish, it is so much more than just that.

Kadhai Mushroom is a spicy melee of mushrooms, capsicum and onions simmered in a freshly ground masala that is so fragrant and a bit of tomato puree for that tartness and body for the curry.

This is probably one of the only curries where I don't substitute the masala with my Garam Masala. It just doesn't taste the same. The fresh masala adds so much flavor that it is almost a sin to substitute it with any store bough mixed spice powder. So I highly recommend making your own spice blend, just for this, and maybe then using it for myriad other curries. 

Kadhai Mushroom can either be a dry or a semi dry curry or it can be a curry with gravy. Every restaurant serves it differently and so can you.

The details...


Kadhai Mushroom is probably one of the easiest curries to make. To make Kadhai Mushroom, toast the whole spices - coriander seeds, cumin seeds, green cardamom, black cardamom, bay leaf, cloves and pepper. Toasting on low heat makes the spices release their oils and makes them more fragrant. Toast the dry red chillies, if using. This can be substituted with red chilli powder or with paprika without affecting the flavor and there is no need to toast it either. Once everything has cooled, make a quick powder.

Next, saute the mushrooms and keep them aside until later. If you don't have the time to do this, just toss them into the curry later and allow them to cook in the masala.

The onions and capsicum are cut into large chunks. This is meant to be a chunky curry. They are sauteed along with ginger garlic paste until they are cooked slightly. Do not overcook the capsicum, it is meant to retain the crunchiness.

Then the tomato puree, turmeric, salt and masala is added along with desired amount of water and the curry is simmered for a few minutes. The mushrooms are added at the end and given a quick stir.

The kasuri methi or dried fenugreek leaves provide an additional salty bitter fragrance that goes superbly with the curry.

Kadhai Mushroom can be served as a side with roti or naan bread or even with rice.

Hagalkai Mavinkai Gojju Bittergourd Raw Mango Curry Karela Kacche Aam sabzi vegan gravy stew bittermelon indian


I first posted this recipe 5 years ago, in June 2015. I remember my mom was in Bangalore and we had gone vegetable shopping with her. She had gotten very excited looking at the Amtekai or Ambada (Hogplums), that were available in abundance at the vegetable shop. We had already picked up the bittergourd or karela or hagalkai and were thinking of the pairing up with the amtekai, when she felt raw mango would be a better accompaniment. So we picked up raw mangoes and bittergourd and came home and made this Gojju. Since then, I make this curry at least once every summer.

What is a Gojju?


Gojju is a curry from Karnataka that is usually sweet and sour. It has tamarind added for sourness and jaggery for sweetness. It may or may not have a coconut base.

Hagalkai Mavinkai Gojju is made using Bittergourd or Karela, that brings a hint of bitterness to the curry, the raw mangoes bring in the sourness, jaggery is added for sweetness and red chillies for the heat.

The prep...


This Gojju can convert a Karela hater. The way in which the karela is cooked brings down the bitterness to such low levels that it is no more unpleasant. The karela is peeled, cored and then salted and left aside for the bitterness to flow out. This can be done days in advance. The salted karela can be kept in the fridge for almost a week. Remove it out when you are ready to cook. The salted karela is squeezed so that the bitter juices are extracted and then can be discarded. Soaking them in water and then squeezing makes it easier to remove the juices.

The squeezed karela is then boiled until it is cooked, the water is discarded. This step removes the more of that bitterness.

The flavors...


The remaining bitterness is balanced with the sourness of the raw mangoes. If the mangoes are not sour enough on their own, use tamarind juice. As mentioned above, the curry tastes good with any sour fruit like amtekai. So if you have any local sour fruit, you can use that.

Jaggery is added for sweetness. Use sugar if you don't have jaggery.

The Gojju has a base of coconut, rice, and lentils along with the spices. The toasted rice and urad dal help thicken the curry. Coconut further helps in mellowing down the strong flavor of the bittergourd or karela.

Hagalkai Mavinkai Gojju tastes best with rice, but if you make a thicker consistency, it can be enjoyed with roti or chapati too.

Schezwan Paratha Recipe | Szechuan Paratha Recipe [Video]


Schezwan Paratha is a Chinese inspired stuffed Indian wholewheat flatbread. The paratha is stuffed with a spicy cabbage, capsicum and onion stuffing.

In a hurry? Jump to Video or Jump to Recipe


szechuan paratha



When normal people think Paratha, schezwan paratha doesn't even pop up in the head. But for a foodie, anything is possible and this schezwan paratha possibly popped in some Indo-Chinese food-obsessed North Indian foodie. Just to let you know, this is not my idea. Na-ah. But the recipe is definitely my own.

Six years ago, I watched a Gujarati cooking show that showed the making of a schezwan paratha. I didn't understand the language, but as they say, food has a language of its own. And that's what happened, I got the gist of the dish while I didn't understand a word of the instructions. And after a few attempts, this paratha was here to stay.

Schezwan Paratha is a perfect fusion of two styles of cuisine. The Chinese inspired vegetable mix is stuffed inside a whole wheat dough, rolled and pan-fried until crisp. The paratha satisfies several cravings - craving for Chinese food, craving for comforting Parathas, the craving for spice and of course, the basic craving for some delicious and new food.

szechuan paratha


Any stuffed paratha has 2 parts, the stuffing, and the coating. The coating, in this case, is a regular dough made of wholewheat flour, a pinch of salt and water. The dough is kneaded the same way one would for chapati or other parathas. If you want you can add some maida or all purpose dough as well while kneading the dough. The soft dough is stuffed with a spicy mixed vegetable stuffing. The stuffing, in this case, is made with julienned vegetables such as onions, capsicum, and cabbage. You can also add carrots. The vegetables are cooked down with a spicy homemade garlic-chilli sauce that is ready in 15 minutes.

Paratha is generally as breakfast item as it is filling and it gives you energy to cruise through the day. But parathas are also a great dinner option. Pair paratha up with some homemade yogurt (Dahi) and pickle and you are all set to lull yourself to a food coma.

Vegan glutenfree creamy north indian punjabi dum aloo baby potatoes masala gravy

Once in a while I indulge… in cooking and eating. Everyone deserves a reward for working hard all week. And a long weekend is the perfect time to indulge. Don’t you agree?

I never buy potatoes with any specific plan of using them. I just add them to any mix vegetable thing I’m cooking or when there are fussy eaters around. Coz which fussy eater does not like potatoes, right?

But when I saw these cute little baby potatoes in the supermarket, I wanted to buy them and make them shine. What better dish to cook with baby potatoes than Punjabi Dum Aloo.


Vegan glutenfree creamy north indian punjabi dum aloo baby potatoes masala gravy



Vegan glutenfree creamy north indian punjabi dum aloo baby potatoes masala gravy

There are different types of Dum Aloo all over India, there is a Kashmiri Dum Aloo, a UP Dum Aloo and a Bengali Dum Aloo as well apart from the Punjabi Dum Aloo. Each one has a different kind of gravy the baby potatoes are simmered in. 

I'm trying to find traditional recipes for the remaining Dum Aloo since I've never tried them. If you have one, contact ME! I would love to try out the other varieties and compare them.

Vegan glutenfree creamy north indian punjabi dum aloo baby potatoes masala gravy

I've tried to keep this indulgent Punjabi Dum Aloo as healthy as possible without losing out on the taste. Some of it's highlights:

  • It is VEGAN - Yesss! Vegan yet creamy is obtained by the addition of a silky smooth Cashew nut paste. Being a Goan, I love my Cashews in anything and everything, so why not in a Punjabi Dum Aloo. Bring it ON! A more traditional Punjabi Dum Aloo has added yogurt or thick cream. I skipped both and only increased the number of cashew nuts used. This gave me all the creamy texture without any dairy in it. Hurray!!
  • Potatoes are boiled, not fried - A lot of Punjabi Dum Aloo recipes call for deep frying of the potatoes. While everyone loves deep-fried potatoes, they are not so much in line with the whole eating healthy food movement. So I boiled them and then tossed them in a hot pan to get a slight char. Feel free to bake them as well. Give it your own twist. 
  • Quick-cooking - Dum Pukht is a form of cooking in which meat or vegetables are cooked over very low heat in sealed containers. This helps develop flavor. While this makes a major difference to meat (at least that's what I've heard), it barely does much for the potatoes in this case. Hence. I pressure cooked the potatoes and later simmered them for a while in the gravy. I can assure you, no flavor was lost in this process.

Summer is almost over and the love of my summers is going to go out from markets soon. Until then we are going to honour the king of fruits - Mango. For us, in the tropics, summer isn't all about the Sun, we see the Sun all year round. But summer brings with it the delicious juicy selection of seasonal fruits like the mango, jackfruit, guavas and melons. But it has always been the mango that rules my heart.

If you love Mangoes as much as I do, you may enjoy these other mango recipes:

Lalbagh in Bangalore has been hosting the annual Mango Mela or Mango Festival for years. Every year farmers from around Bangalore set up their stalls to sell naturally ripened mangoes and organic mangoes. In 2019, it started from 1st June and it is scheduled to be around for 3 weeks. So if you are in the city, do not miss it. They have a wide variety at very competitive prices. We went there on Saturday ago and bought several kilograms of Alphonso, and some of these tiny Sugar Baby or Sakre Gutti. 

I bought the Sugar Baby mangoes only to make this sweet and sour ripe mango curry. You heard it right, ripe mango not raw. The first time I made it I called up several people and collected 5 different recipes, before I decided to make this one given to me by my very close friend from Goa. The Goan version uses Turmeric and Asafoetida, which is optional in the Mangalore version.

There are 2 major variants of this curry - cooked and uncooked. The recipe listed here is the cooked one. The other one, where the coconut masala is not cooked, resembles this Tambuli recipe.

This Mango Curry is best served with rice, but can also be served with bread on the side.

Enjoy the mango season while it lasts!

P.S - This is a repost of a 2015 post. Video instructions are added and the post is altered slightly, but the recipe remains the same.

Sweet and Sour Mango curry made with ripe mangoes and fresh coconut. This recipe is famous along the Konkan coast (Western coast of India) and is a popular curry in Summers.

Recipe Type:  Main Course
Cuisine:          South Indian/ Mangalorean/ Goan
Prep Time:     10 minutes
Cook time:     30 minutes
Yield:              3 Servings

Ingredients:


8 small Ripe Mangoes
1 cup Desiccated Coconut
1 tsp Mustard seeds
2-3 Dry red chillies
2-3 Tbsp Jaggery or Sugar
A marble sized ball Tamarind (Optional)
8-10 Curry leaves
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder / Haldi (Optional)
A pinch Asafoetida / Hing (Optional)
2 tsp Oil
Salt
Water

Method:


1. Wash and peel the mangoes and keep aside
2. Soak the tamarind in half a cup of water and keep aside
3. Dry roast 1/2 tsp of the mustard seeds in a pan on low heat for 1 min. Be careful not to burn it otherwise the curry will turn bitter. 
4. Heat 1 tsp of the oil in the pan, add the red chillies and fry for 30 sec or until the chillies are crisp.
5. Grind the coconut, roasted mustard seeds and red chillies into a coarse paste with a little water. 
6. Heat the remaining oil and add the remaining mustard seeds
7. Once they splutter, add the curry leaves and lower the heat
8. Add the coconut paste, turmeric and asafoetida and mix well. Add 0.5 cup of water and simmer for 6-8 minutes. Turmeric and Asafoetida are used in the Goan version of the curry, while it is optional in the Mangalore version.
9. Slightly mash the mangoes and add to the curry
10. Add water to achieve the desired consistency. Add more if eating with rice and less if with bread.
11. Add salt and jaggery. Do not add all the jaggery at once, taste and add. If the mangoes are very sweet, you may not need much. 
12. Squeeze the tamarind in the water and remove the pulp. Add this sour liquid to the curry. Again, like the jaggery, do not add all the liquid at once, taste and add. If the mangoes are very sour, you may not need it.
13. Cook on low heat for 5 mins.
14. Serve warm with rice or bread.

We've had a week of thunderstorms here in Bangalore and it's been scary. I scare easy, but thunder has never scared me, but I have been pretty jumpy the last weekend. The sound was akin to the sky ripping apart and a few of these extremely loud ones even managed to wake me up. Although we've been swamped with unseasonal rains, I still believe it is Summer, because mangoes, you know. While Bangalore really doesn't have a season for most things, that is, you can find pumpkins and beets all year round, but Mangoes, come only once a year in Summer. So when Summer gives you mangoes, you make sure you make use of it to the fullest. Ripe, raw and everything in between. If you like Mangoes, as much as me, you may also enjoy these other Mango recipes:

I usually shop for the week on Saturday and then prep my veggies for the week ahead. Amidst the thunder and the crazy winds and the heavy downpour, I barely managed to get any meal prep done last weekend. So this Raw Mango Rice just pulled me through Monday. No prep really required, except may be cooking the rice.

Mavinkayi is the Kannada word for raw mangoes and Chitranna, well that's just colorful rice. In all other seasons, Chitranna is made using lemons or limes, but come Summer, tart raw mangoes are the preferred choice. Mavinkayi Chitranna is more of a South Indian fried rice in which leftover rice is tossed with a raw mangoes.

To make Mavinkayi Chitranna, use firm and tart raw mangoes. All green mangoes aren't raw, so pick carefully. Once you have the raw mangoes and some leftover rice, you are all sorted. To make the Raw Mango Rice, all we do is make a tempering of mustard seeds, a few lentils and then toss in grated raw mango along with turmeric and salt and allow the raw mango to cook down slightly. Then toss in the rice and add salt and mix well. Yes, it's as simple as that.

This tastes amazing with a side of Mango pickle, yes more mangoes, or a simple raita.

P.S. - This is a repost of a 2015 post. Only video is added and a few photos. Recipe remains the same.
