Mushroom Matar (Indian Mushroom and Pea Curry)

Our vegetarian Mushroom Matar is a thick and creamy curry made with soft mushrooms, crisp green peas, plus a ton of aromatics and warm spices.

Serving size: 1/2 cup, Makes 8 servings


2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup diced Spanish onions
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon fresh minced ginger
3/4 teaspoon chili powder
3/4 teaspoon garam masala
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/8 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2 cup canned crushed tomatoes, no salt added
1 1/2 pounds whole button mushrooms, cleaned and trimmed
3/4 cup frozen green peas
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro


  1. Heat olive oil in a heavy heavy-bottomed pot over medium-low heat. Add onion, garlic, ginger, chili powder, garam masala, cinnamon, cardamom, and turmeric. Saute 3-4 minutes until onions have softened and mixture is fragrant.
