This Mushroom and potato curry is so full of flavours that your family will fall in love with it for the very first time and you’ll find yourself making it over and over. The secret in getting the creamy texture and fabulous flavour is the addition of yogurt. Yogurt is the main ingredient that makes this curry more flavourful and irresistible. I’ve used just enough to give it a thick and creamy texture. The creamy texture of the curry will surely entice the kids too.

Potato Mushroom Curry Recipe Variations

For the vegan version, swap coconut milk or coconut cream for yogurt. However, you need to add coconut milk along with water and simmer the curry. Ensure to add just enough to get the creamy texture without overpowering the curry with coconut taste.

You may swap cream for yogurt. I’ve used regular plain yogurt. However, you can use low-fat yogurt to reduce the calorie count and make it healthier. If you plan to use low-fat yogurt, you may have to add a small pinch of sugar to balance the sour taste of yogurt.

To give it a veggie boost add a handful of fresh spinach or fenugreek. Add the leafy vegetables along with potatoes.

How to serve potato mushroom curry?

This semi-dry curry pairs well with any flatbreads such as chapati, paratha, naan. Serve it as side-dish with hot steamed rice or with any flavoured rice such as Jeera Rice, Vegetable Masala Rice, Mint Pulao.

Once you stir in yogurt, DO NOT let the curry to boil on high heat, just simmer on low heat for 1-2 minutes to maintain the creamy texture of the curry.

NOTES

You may swap portobello or chestnut mushrooms for button mushrooms.

Cut potatoes to medium size cubes. The smaller the size of potatoes, the quicker it cooks.                                                                                                 

You can use left-over boiled potatoes. Add them along with mushrooms and spices.                                                                                                       

Trim the edges of the stem, slice each mushroom in half from the top through the stem and slice each half to 2-3 pieces depending on the size of the mushroom.              

Add a pinch of salt while sauteing mushrooms and onions to fast up the cooking process. Salt helps to release the moisture from the vegetables quickly and thus saves cooking time.
