Recipe  Notes

  • For best Kadai Mushroom sabzi, it is advisable to use freshly ground spices for the gravy.
  • Also, use fresh spices and not too old, else there won’t be much flavor to it and the sabzi will not taste good.
  • If you do not have time to prepare fresh Kadai Masala, then you can use Garam masala, however, the taste will change a bit.
  • Using red dry Kashmiri chilies will give a good color to the gravy and also won’t be too spicy.
  • I do not use fresh cream in any Kadai gravy as it reduces the spiciness of the sabzi.
  • However, you can add other vegetables too in this Kadai mushroom.
  • If you want to make this gravy richer, then add cashew nuts to this recipe.
