Matar Mushroom is a delicious North Indian dish that is served by almost every Indian Restaurant. It is Gravy Based dish that is very simple to cook but has a lot of flavors. Mushroom Mutter Masala is one of my favorite dishes, I mostly enjoyed it in winter because of the fresh peas. Personally, I don’t like the flavor of the frozen Matar (Peas) in any dish, especially in a Mushroom Mutter. I am using fresh green peas here.
The Gravy of Mushroom Matar is almost the same as that we made for Matar Paneer or any other gravy-based dish but yet the taste of the Mushroom Matar is different from others. The gravy of the Matar Mushroom is semi-dry and it tastes so amazing. Here I am sharing the Restaurant-Style Mushroom Matar recipe.
Once you try this recipe with the exact same masalas that I am using, believe me, it tastes the same as we have in the restaurant. This dish is perfect for lunch and dinner. You can have it with chapati, Naan, Parantha, or even with Jeera Rice.
In this Mushroom Matar recipe, I am not adding any Cashew paste or Mava to make it smooth creamy textured. Here I am just using a simple masala, it is a very simple and light Gravy-based dish.
In this recipe, I am using White Mushroom (Agaricus bisporus). Firstly, I sauté Mushrooms and Matar (Peas) in butter and then adding into the gravy. The Gravy of the Mushroom Matar is simply made up of onions, ginger-garlic, and tomatoes.
I am going to share the full recipe of Mushroom Matar Masala down below. I hope you like and try this recipe and don’t forget to share your experience in the comment section below.

How To Make Matar Mushroom Recipe (in detail):
Sauté Mushrooms and peas:
First, we need to sauté mushrooms to remove the raw flavor. Here is how to do that.
- Take a Kadai or pan and add butter to it.
- Now add Chopped White Button Mushroom in it.
- When Mushrooms are half cooked then add 1 cup of peas in it. Cook it for a while.

Preparing Gravy for Mushroom Matar:

- Add 2 finely chopped tomatoes to it. Cook it well.
- Now add 1 tsp of Turmeric powder, 1 tbsp of coriander powder, and 1 tsp of red chili powder. Mix it well.
- Add Salt to taste. Mix it well. If the masala is sticking on the bottom of the kadai, you can add 2-3 tbsp of water to it.
- Now it’s time to add Sautéed Mushrooms and peas in it. Along with Mushrooms and Peas add 1 or half glass of water to it. You can adjust the amount of water according to the thickness of the gravy because the consistency of the gravy should be semi-dry.
