Palak Mushroom | Khumbh PalaK | Mushroom In Spinach Gravy | Healthy Vegan Gravy For Roti / Rice / Naan By Veena Theagarajan

Palak (spinach) and Mushroom combo resulted in a delicious healthy side dish. This gravy is rich in protein, iron, and vitamins. We all love spinach and mushroom. Combining both resulted in a very tasty and healthy dish. Everyone in the family loved it. This dish can be served with steamed rice / jeera rice / roti / naan. I had followed Palak Potatoes and replaced potatoes with Mushrooms

Palak - 2 cups (when cut into 1/2 inch pieces)
Mushrooms - 300g (sliced thinly)
Oil - 2 teaspoon
Onion - 1 (sliced finely)
Garlic - 3 pods (finely chopped)
Tomatoes - 2 (chopped finely)
Green Chillies - 2 
Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon
Garam masala - 1/2 teaspoon
coriander powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Turmeric powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Red chili powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Ginger - 1 inch (slice finely)
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 teaspoon


Cook the palak with little water.  Switch it off and let it cool down. When cool down grind cooked palak to smooth paste using mixie or blender or food processor.
Heat the kada and add 1 teaspoon oil. Add garlic and ginger and fry till garlic is brown in color.Add onion, green chillies and fry till transparent. Add tomatoes and fry till it is mushy. Switch it off. Let it cool down. Grind to smooth paste. (I have grinded in the same blender in which I made spinach puree so the color is green)
Heat the kada again. Add rest of the oil. Add cumin seeds. Let it crackle. Add turmeric powder, Garam masala, coriander powder and chilli powder. Add mushroom 
Cook till they shrink in size. 
Add onion tomato paste. Fry for 2-4 mins.  Add spinach paste. Add enough water so that you get desired consistency. Let it boil for 3-4 mins. Switch off the flame
Serve hot with steamed rice / jeera rice / roti naan.
