When the masala is roasted well add tomato-ginger-green chili paste to it, followed by some red chilly powder and saute the masala until oil starts separating from it.

When the masala is roasted, add choliya and salt to it. Mix everything really well and add half cup of water to the masala. Cover and let the choliya cook until they get tender. Stir the sabzi at every 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, clean the mushrooms and chop them in small chunks. After 10 minutes, when the choliya turn tender, add mushrooms, garam masala and some green coriander and mix thoroughly. Cover again and let it simmer for 2 minutes on low flame. 

Sabzi is done and ready, transfer it to a bowl and garnish with some green coriander. Super tasty choliya mushroom sabzi is ready, Serve it with piping hot chapattis, paranthas or naan and relish eating.


  • Instead of making gravy with cashews, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, peanuts and so on can also be used. 
  • If you like the flavors of onion and garlic then finely chop an onion and finely chop 3 to 4 cloves of garlic and saute until the onion turns pinkish in color. After this add the paste and rest follow the same.
  • There is no need to rinse mushrooms with water. Just clean them with dry cloth. 
  • You can adjust the consistency of gravy as per your taste and preference.
