Mushroom Maskaawala

This is a dish made with dal gravy. I experimented this and came to know that without much spices also one can make an awesome gravy using Dal. Thanks to Neeta Mehta from whom I got to know this wonderful dish and innovative idea.

Ingredients :- 1 large capsicum - Chopped
                     200 gms Button Mushroom - each cut into 4 pieces
                     1 tsp Coriander seeds - crushed into two pieces.
                     1 Onion - chopped
                     1 green chili chopped
                     2 tbsp fresh coriander
                     1 tbsp garam masala
                     11/2 tbsp dry mango powder
                     turmeric powder -1/2 tbsp
                     salt to taste
                     1 tbsp oil
                     2 tbsp butter
Dal Tomato paste :- 2 tbsp split bengal gram ( Channa Dal)
                              1 tbsp Cum seeds (jeera)
                              2 tomatoes

Method :- Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan or kadhai. Add Mushrooms. Saute on high flame till golden. Add Capsicum and saute for another 1 -2 mins. Sprinkle 1/2 tbsp salt, 1/2 tbsp Pepper and remove from flame. Boil(pressure cook for 1 whistle) the Channa dal, tomatoes and 1/2 cup water. Remove strain and grind it to make a smooth paste. Heat butter in a pan and add coriander seeds and wait till it starts turning brown. Add Onion, green chilli. Cook till onion turns pink. Add the Dal paste, garam masala, mango powder and cook stirring continously so that dal does not stick at the bottom. Add the mushroom and capsicum and add 1/2 cup water and mix well cook . Decorate with chopped coriander and onion. Serve hot with rice, chapati or butter nan.
