Authentic Mushroom Curry

Mushroom curry is one of the easiest recipes to make.

For creamy and smooth consistency I use a little bit of yogurt also for this recipe, it makes it flavorful as well.

This light mushroom curry can be served with simple boiled rice/ dinner rolls/ naan bread. This is so fresh and full of earthy taste that you will be called kitchen king or queen after making it.

For this recipe, you can use a white button or cremini mushrooms as it won’t affect the taste. As all mushrooms are really good and rich in protein, antioxidants, vitamins, nutrients, minerals etc.

You can freeze the leftover mushroom curry and whenever you have a craving, just take it out from the freezer, heat, and eat. So easy, isn’t it?

  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
