Palak Mushroom

Palak paneer my favourite, but when I tried palak mushroom recipe of Medhaa it was great with tandoori roti. Realy a smooth and healthy dish, easy to prepare and tastes great.


1 bunch Spinach
200 gms Button Mushrooms
2 medium Onions
1 Tomato
2 Green chilies
1 inch Ginger
4 cloves Garlic
2 cloves
2 green cardamom
4-5 black pepper corns
1/2 inch cinnamon stick
Salt to tast
1/2 tsp red Chili powder
1 tsp Coriander powder
2 tbsp Milk


  1. Wash the spinach leaves thoroughly, cut one of the onions and tomato in quarters.
  2. Steam the Spinach,quartered onion and tomato. Cool.
  3. Chop the other onion and fry in little oil till they are golden brown. remove and drain on paper towel.
  4. Once the Spinach Mix and fried onions are cooled to room temperature, grind all the other ingredients along with the Spinach and Fried onion, other than the milk, mushrooms, salt, coriander and red chili powder.
  5. Heat oil in a sauce pan,add the mushrooms and cook for about 5 minutes till done and water evaporates, add the coriander powder and red chili powder and cook for a minute. Add the ground mixture (Make sure the heat is in low and you cover the sauce pan immediately since this splutters a lot).
  6. Cook this till the oil separates, stirring occasionally. Keep covered till it stops spluttering. Add milk, salt and extra water according to the required consistency. Bring to a boil.
    Garnish with a dollop of cream, or butter serve with Naan, roti, Chapati etc..
