Handi Cooking – Kumbh Hara Dhania ( Coriander Mushroom )

This is our penultimate post in handi cooking series. A rich vegetarian curry that highlights the importance of fresh coriander in Indian cooking. Use of boiled onion paste in the recipe helped improve the texture and taste. The cashew paste added towards the end made it rich and creamy.

The recipe is simple and easy to cook. Except for making the boiled onion paste and cashew paste, the preparation involves just getting the ingredients together, blanching and cutting the mushrooms. The gravy or curry for this recipe is the basic gravy that can be used for kofta and paneer delicacies as well. Add 3 Tbs of fried onion paste and 1 tsp of garam masala in the end along with the cashew paste if using the gravy for kofta or paneer delicacies.
