Kumbh Matar Masala (button Mushrooms And Pea Curry)
Kumbh Matar Masala is a typical North Indian side dish recipe wherein Kumbh (Mushrooms) and green peas are cooked in Spicy gravy. Kumbh is considered as vegetarian mutton liver in North India and is thus quite popular among vegetarians and among non – Vegetarians during the scared months like ‘Sawaan’(Period from August to September) and ‘Kartik’ (Period from October to Novemeber). The way to cook Kumbh Matar masala is thereby exactly the same as you cook mutton liver or Keema Matar in North India. This recipe is now quite popular in all the food dhabas (Food Joints) if you travel to Delhi and Punjab due to its taste and the rising awareness about the health benefits of Mushrooms but a decade ago, mushrooms were considered as poisonous and evils food and thus it was prohibited among Hindu Population in Northern India. Thanks to the internet and social media which is changing the attitude of common people towards their food habits. I am also sharing this recipe and hopefully, it will make you taste mushrooms, if you have not done so far.
