Kadai or karahi is a thick, circular, and deep cooking pot that originated in the Indian subcontinent. Mainly used in Indian, Afghan, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, and Nepalese cuisines. Traditionally press-formed from mild steel sheet or made of wrought iron or non-stick, karahi looks like woks with steeper sides and 2 handles.

Tips to keep in mind while cleaning and cooking mushrooms:

Firstly, clean the mushrooms by rubbing the dirt off or rinsing them under running water. Do not soak them in water for long, as they tend to form soggy. Secondly, while cooking, mushroom releases water when it starts to get cooked. So do not add water for this recipe

Spicy Kadai Mushroom Masala | with step by step photos and video. A healthy and tasty side-dish. Goes well with rice, roti, and any Indian breads. One of the simplest and tastiest recipe. To make the dish spicy, I prefer to use green chilies than chili powder. Do not add more tomato than the amount mentioned here. Moreover the mushroom is cooked and sauted in our basic Indian spice masalas, which turned out to be a yummy and delicious masala. This masala can be used in the mushroom dum biryani as a layer also.

Further, I would like to highlight our roadside kaalan or mushroom masala.
