Spicy dry mushroom curry

Mushroom is one of our favorite. Here comes a south indian style dry curry. Goes well with any variety rice, sambhar rice n curd rice.


Ingredients:
1. Mushroom - 250 gms - cut into small pieces
2. Cooking oil - 4 tbs
3. Mustard seeds + urad daal (white lentil) - 1/2 tbs
4. Cumin seeds / Jeera - 1/2 tbs
5. Curry leaves - 4 nos
6. Dried red chillies - 4 nos (roughly broke into small pieces)
7. Big brown onion - 1/2 finely chopped
8. Kadalai paruppu /Splited channa daal / Splited peas - roughly 1 handful (soaked in water for 30 mins)
9.Turmeric powder - pinch
10. Coriander powder - 2 tbs (optional)
11. Red chilli powder - 1 tbs
12. Salt to taste
13. Coriander leaves for dressing
14. Grated fresh coconut - roughly one handful

Method:
1. Heat cooking oil in a pan, add mustard seeds + urad daal, once it splatters add cumin seeds, then curry leaves. After 10 sec add dried red chilli and saute for 30 sec. Now add chopped onion and cook till its transparent.
2. Drain water from soaked splited peas and add it to the onion, saute for a min. Add mushroom, turmeric powder, chilli powder, coriander powder, salt and mix well. Close the pan with a lid and cook the mushroom in medium flame. No need to add water. Mushroom ll lose moisture n that would be enough. If the gravy is too dry add 1/2 cup of water.
3. Remove the lid after 10 mins and check whether peas get cooked. Else stir and close the lid. Once peas is cooked sprinkle cilantro leaves & grated coconut, mix well and remove from flame.
Serve hot with rice/ chappathi.
