Mushroom Stew

As the holidays near, the days seem to be getting busier & busier. Couple of weeks back, the Sunday was a whirlwind with friends coming over for both brunch and dinner. Brunch was a simple Rava Idli with sambhar & chili powder. Dinner was a little more elaborate with this mushroom stew, Kerala red rice, cucumber raita, rasam & dessert. 

I put together this spicy mushroom stew at the last minute, and it went fast. Saute a halved & sliced onion in butter + olive oil, add the 16 oz. sliced crimini mushrooms when the onion have softened. Add a diced tomato, season with salt, 1/2 tsp chili powder and 1 tsp kitchen king masala. I also added 1 tsp of cumin + coriander powder. Add 1 cup of water and cook for a few minutes. Garnish with cilantro and serve. That was definitely easy :)
