Mushroom Butter Masala - Side dish for roti, paratha, nann and jeera rice

Mushroom Butter Masala - restaurant style masala with mushrooms in a creamy gravy. A delicious gravy that can be served for various dishes like rotis, parathas, jeera rice and nann. This mushroom butter masala has widely become popular in many restaurants and prepared in different methods.
 


This masala is same as my Paneer butter masala recipe and my favourite method too. The secret to a perfect masalas lies in the tomato selection. It has to be ripe with thick red colour. To add extra colour and sweetness, some prefer to add tomato sauce for these types of gravies. But I don't prefer any additional sauce for gravies. For this mushroom butter masala, I have used home made fresh cream, which was so tasty and light. Fresh cream can be easily taken with cow's milk. Boil 500 ml  cow's milk and allow it to cool down completely. Refrigerate the milk for 6 to 8 hours. After 6 hours, you can see a thick layer on the top of the milk. This tip was told by Tamil Nadu's famous Chef. Mrs. Revathy Shanmugam in a cookery show. Now a days for gravies, I follow this method and it is tasty too, and we also felt it was light when having it for dinner.
