Mushrooms with Coriander and Cumin

This mushroom curry is a slightly modified version of the recipe I usually make. The mushrooms are cut into larger chunks, and the serving size is smaller. It's an ideal side dish for two people.

  • 2 tablespoons sesame or olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1-inch piece fresh ginger, minced or grated
  • 1 scallion, green parts, finely chopped
  • 2 to 3 fresh red or green chilies, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne, to taste
  • 1 small tomato, grated or crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • Wipe the mushrooms with a damp cloth and cut them into large slices. Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add the cumin seeds and stir for 1 minute. Then add the mushrooms and stir to coat the mushrooms with oil. Next add the garlic, ginger, chillies, scallion and spices. Stir and fry for a couple of minutes. Add the tomato, stir, and season with salt and pepper. Reduce the heat to low and cook gently for another 5 minutes. Stir in the parsley and serve hot.

Lisa, It always amazes me how high quality the pictures are after you scan them out of a cookbook. You really have a talent in that regard.

You're just jealous because you own photographs are of such inferior quality. Be nice, or I'll take back my offer to make you dinner.
