PREPARATION
Initial Ingredient Preparation
1.
Soak 10 to 12 cashews in 1/3 cup hot water for 15 minutes. Soaking cashews helps to grind them better, especially if you have a blender or mixer-grinder which has difficulty grinding nuts and seeds. If you do not have time to soak, then just chop them and grind with coconut.
2.
Once the cashews are soaked, add them to the grinder along with 1/2 cup grated coconut or 1/3 cup desiccated coconut.
3.
Add 1/3 cup fresh water and grind to a smooth paste. If using desiccated coconut, then use warm water while grinding. Keep the coconut-cashew paste aside.
4.
When the cashews are soaking, rinse or wipe the mushrooms and slice or chop them. Chop the onions and tomatoes. Set aside.
Preparing the Korma Curry
5.
Heat 2 tablespoon oil. You can use peanut oil or sunflower oil. add 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds. On a low to medium flame saute till they begin to crackle.
6.
Once they begin crackling, then add 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds, 8 to 10 fenugreek seeds and 1/2 teaspoon urad dal. If you do not have fenugreek seeds, skip them.
7.
Saute till the urad dal turns a maroonish red. Cook on a low flame, so that the urad dal, fenugreek seeds and cumin do not burn.
8.
Add 1/3 cup chopped onions. Begin to saute the onions on a low to medium flame, till the onions begin to get light brown.
9.
Add 1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste. Saute till the raw aroma of ginger-garlic goes away.
10.
Next add 1 cup chopped tomatoes. Mix well and begin to saute the tomatoes until they soften.
11.
Add 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon red chilli powder, 1 teaspoon coriander powder and 1 teaspoon garam masala powder.
12.
Mix the spice powders very well with the onion tomato masala.
13.
Add the sliced or chopped mushrooms.
14.
Mix well and saute the mushroom on a low to medium flame for 5 to 6 minutes.
15.
Add the coconut-cashew paste and 10 to 12 curry leaves. Mix very well and saute for 2 to 3 minutes on a low flame.
16.
When the masala is getting sauteed, add 2 cups water in the blender jar. Swirl and rotate the jar gently so that the remaining coconut-cashew paste gets mixed with water. Add this water to the masala mixture. Mix well.
17.
Season with salt as per taste.
18.
Cover the pan with a lid and simmer mushroom korma for 14 to 15 minutes.
19.
When the korma is done, you will see specks of oil floating on top and the curry will also thicken a bit.
20.
Garnish with some chopped coriander leaves and serve mushroom korma hot with steamed rice, chapatis or pooris.
