Creamy Mushroom & Spinach Gravy

Last night for dinner we had chapathis and I was lazy to cut veggies or rather spend a lot of time in the kitchen because of the cold that I have.When I saw the mushroom and spinach I wanted to make something easy and tasty. In less than 15minutes time I had this gravy done and it was an instant success. Vivek loved it.


Button mushrooms - stem removed and cut lenghtwise 1 cup
Thinly sliced onions - 1/2 cup
Garlic - 2 cloves chopped
Spinach - 2 cups
Red pepper flakes - 1.5 tsp (or as needed)
Paprika - 1/2 tsp
Heavy cream - 1.5 cup
White vinegar - 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Garam masala - 1 pinch


1. Heat a pan and pour in a tbsp of EVOO and when hot add the garlic and onions and let it cook completely
2. Add the mushrooms followed by red pepper flakes, paprika and vinegar
3. Let it cook 3/4 and add the cream and salt and let it simmer for a few minutes
4. Now add the spinach and once the spinach is completely cooked add the pinch of garam masala and switch off the stove and let it rest for a couple of minutes before you serve it.

It does taste good with rice also. Tried tasting it and it was good.You guys should try it.
