Use Moji's Mushroom Masala to turn your side of mushrooms into a healthy, flavorful vegan main course. Create a sautéed mushroom dish with a hint of heat in about half an hour. Cook alongside Moji’s Dahl and basmati rice for a delicious and complete Indian meal.


2 tablespoons olive oil

3 cloves of garlic, chopped

1 medium tomato, diced

1 pound white mushrooms, sliced

¾ teaspoon fine salt (not sea salt)

1 packet Moji Masala Mushroom Masala


Step 1  Place a wide-based sauté pan on medium heat. When the pan is hot add the olive oil and sauté the garlic cloves for one minute.

Step 2  Add the tomato and sauté, stirring continuously for about 4 minutes, until it releases all its water, softens, and breaks apart (see pic below).

Step 3   Add the salt and the Mushroom Masala to the tomato, followed by 2 tablespoons of water, and blend well.  Sauté the mixture for about a minute until you have a moist paste (see pics below).

Step 4  Add the mushrooms and coat well with the tomato-masala paste.

Step 5   Adjust the heat to medium-high.  Sauté the mushrooms for about 10 minutes, stirring continuously until the water is released and they have softened.  The water released from the mushrooms will help form the curry paste; add small amounts of water, if necessary to keep the masala paste moist.
