Recipe- Make You Sunday Dinner Special With Kadai Mushroom

Kadai in Hindi literally means “a thick, circular, and deep wok” widely used in Indian cooking so the word “kadai” in Indian recipes is used when a dish is cooked in kadai and it almost always involves bell peppers. You can see I used a mini kadai in the 1st pic, the ones in which we cook are obviously larger than this!

So the story goes like this, ever since I can remember I have always loved mushroom. Even though growing up, it was not a veggie that mom would make often still whenever she made it, I ate 1 big bowl full. I love mushroom in my pizzas, burgers and just about everything. And then I got married. And then I realized that my husband hates it and that was the end of my love affair with mushroom. No he never asked me to not cook it but it seemed like a lot of work to cook something exclusively for myself.

Is this vegan? No because I added 1 tablespoon of cream to it. Just skip that and then it’s all vegan! Give this flavorful dish a try, it’s the perfect side dish for naan, paratha or roti. I ate it with some vegetable biryani and loved it!

A tip to make this dish more flavorful, use fresh ginger garlic paste rather than store bought. It makes a lot of difference. To make fresh ginger garlic paste simply chop garlic and ginger very finely and then crush the two together using your mortar and pestle. It’s a little extra work but it’s so worth it.
