Oyster Mushroom Masala /Kaalan Masala

Oyster Mushroom Masala

My Hubby is a great fan of Mushrooms. We make Mushrooms at our house atleast once in a week.We generally use Button Mushrooms. However, my hubby found the Oyster Mushrooms at the Market one day and I made a simple Mushroom Curry with it and it tasted yum. You can make this
 recipe with regular Mushrooms also.


Oyster Mushrooms - 1 Packet
Onion - 1 (Finely Chopped, Large)
Red Chilly Powder - 1 Tablespoon
Coriander Powder - 1 Teaspoon
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 Teaspoon
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 Teaspoon
Pepper Powder - 1/2 Teaspoon
Green Chilly Powder - 1 (Slit)
Oil - 1 Teaspoon
Salt - To Taste

  • Wash and cut the mushrooms into 4 pieces.
  • Heat a pan with some oil and once the oil is hot add the Onions.
  • Saute till the onions changes to transparent.
  • Then add the Ginger Garlic paste and Saute for a minute or 2. 
  • Then add the Dry spices powder and saute, reduce the flame and cook for 2 minutes.
  • If you feel that the masala is burning then sprinkle some water and cover it with a lid.
  • After 2 minutes, add the chopped mushrooms and saute for a minute till all Mushroom is coated with the Masala.
  • Cook The mushrooms till it is done, Cover it with lid while cooking it.
  • This may take 7-8 minutes to get done. Open the lid for every 2 minutes and saute to ensure that the Mushrooms don't Burn.
  • The Mushroom will leave enough water that is required for this Masala, if not, sprinkle some Water.
  • Don't pour water as we want to make it as a Thick gravy. 
  • Serve it with Roti or Rice.
