Chettinad cuisine is one of the popular cuisines of Tamilnadu.

This recipe is adapted from Indobase website.I made some changes according to my taste.

Ingredients:

Button Mushroom - 2 lbs.Wipe the mushrooms with a wet paper towel.Cut the stalks and quarter the mushrooms.

Onion - 1 medium,chopped finely.

Tomato - 1 chopped

Tamarind paste - 1tsp

Mustard seeds - 2tsp

Curry leaves - a sprig

Turmeric powder - 1tsp

Dry red chillies - 2

Oil - 2tbsp

Salt to taste

Water - 1/2 cup

For the spice powder :

Channa Dal/Split Bengal Gram Dal - 1Tbsp

Whole Black pepper - 1Tbsp

Garam Masala - 1tsp

Dry roast the Dal and pepper and grind with garam masala into a fine powder.

Method:

Heat the oil in a pan.When hot add the mustard seeds.When they splutter,add the dry red chillies and curry leaves.

Then add the mushrooms,turmeric powder.

Saute till the mushrooms start to sweat.Close the lid and cook for about 5 minutes.

Then add the tamarind paste along with a half a cup of water and allow to boil for 5 minutes.

Add the required amount of salt.

Finally add the spice powder,mix and cook for 2 minutes.

Serve with roti or rice.
