Mushroom lovers will no doubt agree that this curry needs little introduction. Besides, it's about the food and not a lengthy preamble. Here meaty button mushrooms are enhanced in this dish by a rich blend of Indian spices, tangy tomatoes and plump local green peas. In addition to adding texture to dishes they appear in, mushrooms are a perfect vehicle for the seasonings present. This one is a perfect example of the magic mushrooms can conjure up.
Frozen green peas can be used in this curry, but if you are able to take advantage of the relatively short window of opportunity, do take the time to shell fresh peas while they are in season.
Serve with your favorite legume dishes, rice or Indian flatbreads for a balanced, satisfying and nourishing meal.
