My love for rich and creamy curries is never ending and it becomes even better when it is homemade.
Therefore, even for weekdays I make these creamy curries which are delicious and easy at the same time.

Also, Mushroom is one of my favourite vegetables and therefore I keep looking for different recipes that I can make using this versatile vegetable.
Though, there are varieties of curries to make, this one is the simplest of all making it apt for weekday meals.
With the creaminess of cream and flavours from kasuri methi, this curry is always a hit at the dining table, and thus I often make it for house parties and get togethers too.

What is Mushroom Matar?
It is a North Indian curry which has all the goodness of Mushrooms and Green Peas.
The base of this curry is made with tomato and onion which is spiced with everyday spices such as coriander powder, turmeric powder, Kashmiri red chilli powder, roasted cumin powder and garam masala powder.
The addition of cream and Kasuri methi in the end, gives it a creamy and rich taste, which is hard to resist.
I sometimes also likes to skip cream and kasuri methi and keep this curry simple.
For its best taste, serve this delectable curry along with some hot and flaky Laccha Parathas.
You can serve it with any Indian Bread of your choice, as it tastes great with everything.
You can also substitute Mushrooms with Paneer, Aloo, Kaju etc to make a inviting curry.
