Mushroom Do Pyaza

Mushroom do pyaza uses the onion in double the quantity hence the name "do pyaza".   This mushroom dish is tasty and can be made in a jiffy.


500 gms mushroom (quartered)
2 Tablespoons Oil
1/4 Teaspoon Cumin seeds
1 Capsicum - sliced
12 Baby White Onions
1 tomatoes (chopped)
1 Medium Onion - sliced
1.1/2 Teaspoons Kacha Masala
1 Cube Veg seasoning
1 Teaspoon Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Lemon juice
1 Tablespoon Coriander leaves -chopped
Salt to taste

Grind to paste

1 Large Onion
2 Medium Tomatoes
8 Black Pepper Corns
4 Cloves Garlic
1 Inch Piece Ginger
Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seed and when it starts to splutter add the sliced onion . Fry till the onions are translucent.
Then add  the ground paste and  Kacha Masala, mix all the ingredients well and saute till oil  leaves the sides.

Add tomatoes and cook, till tomatoes are little pulpy and oil 
 leaves the sides.

Add the baby onions, sugar, veg cube and capsicum, fry till capsicum is little soft.

Now add the mushroom pieces along with salt to taste  fry for 2 minutes then add 1/2 cup water bring it to a boil. Cover it with a lid and cook till done. Cook on low flame.
When mushrooms are cooked add finely chopped coriander leaves and lime juice. This is a semi dry gravy and goes very well with chapatis or parathas.   Granish with suate onions and capsicum.  Serve hot.

My Notes : 
If you do not have white baby onions then use shallots or ordinary onions(cut them in big pieces) .

  1. Thanks so much for stopping by and linking to First Monday Favorites. I love Indian food, and this sounds like a dish I'm going to have to make for myself. And it gives me a chance to try my hand at making Parathas.
