I know Paneer Butter Masala must be a frequent affair at your kitchen or in your meal in restaurant. However, have you ever tasted this creamy rich mushroom butter masala? If not then you should definitely try this restaurant style mushroom butter masala at your kitchen.
Some people always complaint that whenever they cook mushroom it turns soggy. Here is the way how to sauté mushroom so they don’t turn soggy. Water content in mushroom is high so when you start cooking it releases lot of water and if you are cooking under low flame it definitely turns soggy. First of all before cooking mushroom, I take time to clean and wash them with care as they are very delicate. I allow to drain the water properly and later wipe gently the mushrooms with kitchen towel. Then I slice them. When I sauté the mushrooms, I do it under high flame so at this time mushroom releases water and evaporates immediately and this is the reason they turn soggy anymore. While sautéing normally we add a bit salt but I would say add salt almost at the end of the process of sautéing.
Many people avoid eating butter masala gravies as it is pretty rich in calories as we are adding butter, fresh cream, etc. We can reduce the calories little bit by cutting down the fresh cream and adding low fat milk instead. This will not have much affect on the taste part of the gravy.
One more trick is always add kasoori methi after crushing them between your palms which gives the aroma to the gravy. Sprinkling kasoori methi on top will not give the share of flavour and aroma when you crush them and add it.
I have learnt these tricks by trial and error methods in my own kitchen and sharing with all my lovely readers so that you can prepare and enjoy a delicious dish like mushroom butter masala or mushroom makhana.
