Mushroom masala is a traditional Indian dish that is tasty, warm, and simple to make. It's also referred to as "masala mushroom curry" or "mushroom curry." This recipe makes a delicious curry that can be served over rice, with chapati, or on its own. This is a completely vegetarian meal that is also vegan-friendly.


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cinnamon stick (2 inches)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 2 green cardamom pods
  • 2 whole cloves
  • 1 star anise
  • 1 bay leaf
  • ½ onion finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste
  • 2 tomatoes, pureed
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder, or to taste
  • salt to taste
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup of water
  • 1 tablespoon cashew nuts
  • 1 teaspoon masala salt
  • ½ teaspoon kasoori methi


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat the oil. Combine cinnamon, cumin seeds, green cardamom, cloves, star anise, and bay leaf in a mixing bowl. Stir for 30 seconds to allow the oil to absorb the flavors and aroma.
  2. Cook until the onion is slightly caramelized, about 10 minutes. Add the ginger garlic paste and cook for 1 minute, or until the smell goes away. Stir in the tomatoes for 3 to 4 minutes. Mix in the coriander, turmeric, and chili powder. Allow the sauce to reduce for 3 to 5 minutes. Mix in the salt. Stir in the mushrooms until they are completely covered in sauce.
  3. Pour in the water and cook the mushrooms in the sauce for 5 to 7 minutes, or until slightly soft. Cook, stirring constantly, for about 2 minutes after adding the powdered cashews and garam masala. Break the kasoori methi into small pieces and combine with the flour; remove from the heat and serve.
