Mushroom Tikka Masala | Easy Mushroom Curry

Mushroom Tikka Masala is an Indian curry where Mushroom get marinated in yogurt and other spices and is cooked in a tomato-based creamy curry. This dish goes very well with naan/rice/paratha. Mushroom tikka masala is a vegetarian alternative to chicken tikka masala.

For making mushroom tikka masala, I have made mushroom tikka first, the same as paneer tikka or chicken tikka. The only difference is that I have used a tsp of besan (Chickpea flour) in marinating the mushrooms. Adding besan or cornflour helps the mushroom to release less water and get a nice crusty layer.

For the masala, onions, tomatoes, and other spices cooked together. And the mushroom tikkas and heavy cream are finally added to the masala. For making the masala I have used the canned tomato puree, but it is totally optional. You can always use the fresh grind tomato to make this yummy curry. Mushroom tikka masala is ready to serve!! Garnish it with have heavy cream and cilantro leaves and serve hot!!
