This dry matar mushroom is healthy yet delicious. It is home style recipe that goes perfect with roti or paratha. It is dry or semi-dry kind of dish. I have already shared the gravy version of mushroom matar.

In this recipe, I have marinated the mushrooms in yogurt and spices for some time. Trust me a touch yogurt in marination makes the huge difference in flavors. I have tried without marinating mushrooms as well. That way it also tastes good. But try it once with marinated mushrooms. You will sure love it.

15) Cover it and cook. If you see half way of cooking, mushroom will leave its water. And as peas and mushroom get cooked, water will dry out.

16) If water dries out and peas are not cooked yet then you can add or sprinkle some water and continue cooking. I have used frozen peas which does not require too much cooking time. If using fresh peas then it might take some more time to cook. Once both are soft and tender, turn off the stove and serve.
