Creamy Mushroom and Peas Curry

6 Nov

Last couple week’s I wanted to make a creamy curry recipe but was just being lazy. As I consume more vegetables than rice, I am constantly looking for variations in my recipes. But most often I windup making cabbage soup. So searching online I came across a south Indian Mushroom and Pea’s Recipe that I altered to my taste and made it more efficient.

This recipe calls for first sauteing the vegetables separately and then cooking it in the curry. Secondly the curry is made by grinding coconut and cashews, I added some heavy cream towards the end. The cream tones the spiciness if you do not like spicy foods. Also as and Indian we love pasta but with a tad bit of spice, this is another way you can use the creamy Mushroom Pea Curry.

Ingredients:

16 oz of white/brown mushrooms

Finally add the peas and mushrooms, check on seasoning and cook on medium heat for 10-15 minutes covered. Finally add cold heavy cream for the last-minute or two.

Garnish with curry leaf or fresh chopped cilantro/coriander.

    I’m lactose intolerant so I have to watch my lactose intake, otherwise I suffer. Nothing life threatening, but!

    The good news is that there is lactose free cream readily available.

    Curries are always ambitious projects for me so I might not get to this for a while. But I really like the look of this so I will do at some point.

    • Nandini November 7, 2015 at 9:05 am #

      Thank You Harry. You do make a good point that curries are an ambitious projects to start out but once’s you get over the initial bump then it’s smooth cruising from then on. You and Gloria have a great weekend πŸ™‚

    Morning Nandini!

    What must I say, that is the question, PLAYING ON MY MIND. I am SIMPLY running out of words. I think I will put it this way. First and foremost Your presentation and photo shots look INCREDIBLE as always. It goes without saying that this dish would taste as good as it looks. I like the fact that You consume more veggies than rice. I think in the process You are SETTING GOOD EATING HABITS TO ALL OF US. As the saying goes, YOU GOT TO LEAD BY EXAMPLE.. In British society youngsters these days are not interested in vegetables. They are into eating JUNK FOOD and DRINKING FIZZY DRINKS. In other words their eating habits are going DOWNHILL. BRITISH MEDICS go to the extent of saying that the youngsters of today will DIE BEFORE THEIR PARENTS and maybe even before their grandparents all because of the kind of food they tuck in and that’s kind of FRIGHTENING. Now coming back to Your dish, We will give it a go very soon. My spouse likes anything to do with MUSHROOM,S, She could live on them. So I am looking forward to Nandini’s magic on Our lunch table this sunday. HURRAH! Sunday meals are taken care of. What more could I ask for?

    Have a BRILLIANT weekend.

    WITH OUR EVERY BLESSING!

    Stan & Linda

      Thank You so much Mr Stan. I am happy to know you like this recipe and that Mrs Stan enjoy’s mushroom so hopefully it will be on the menu. With all the cancer causing reports that have been published by WHO it is really hard to know what is really safe to eat now a days and all the GMO foods along with it. It does worry me at time about my kids. Praying that God’s protective hand is on us all. Wishing you both a great weekend as well πŸ™‚

  27. Loretta November 9, 2015 at 10:40 am #

    Beautiful Nandini, I’m sure the cashew nuts and the coconut gave this curry a nice depth of flavor, and there’s nothing like a good vegetable curry is there? Your photos are lovely too.

    • Nandini November 9, 2015 at 10:51 am #

      Thank You so much Loretta. Cashews definitely thickens the curry making it smooth and creamy. A goan just needs curry all the time. Have a lovely week πŸ™‚

    Your recipe for Curried mushrooms and Peas is intriguing. I’ve learned from the gourmet chef who is the co-author of my cookbook that you can make your own curry, but I’ve never seen a specific recipe. I love curry, and am definitely going to try this. thank you for all your creativity!

      Sorry to have missed your comment RuthAnn it was not intentional. I just missed it some how. Everyone has their own version of curry recipes. I follow more what my mom makes and guess it is passed down in each family. I am glad to know that you do enjoy curries and hopefully will give this recipe a try πŸ™‚

  36. articakram December 18, 2015 at 2:42 am #

    look great…gonna try this soon

    I love curries and your recipe sounds very yummy. I once used fenugreek seeds in my curry and it gave it an off taste almost bitter. Maybe it was because I ground it first. Will try this recipe and leave it whole this time :). I checked some of your recipes and everything looks so mouth watering. Thanks for linking my site so that I could find yours!

    • Nandini June 27, 2016 at 12:41 pm #

      You are very welcome and Thank You as well for stopping by. You have to use very sparingly πŸ™‚
