Mushrooms with their earthy texture can be a great option for your meatless meals especially if you cook them as they are, a perfect example is this creamy button mushroom curry.

Can I use fresh button mushrooms?

Yes, you can.

Can I use other types of mushrooms to make the curry?

Honestly, I have no idea, you might be able to make the same mushroom curry but there might be a change in taste.


I would suggest only using button mushrooms for the recipe.

Substitute I can use instead of coconut milk for the mushroom gravy?

 

You can use any type of cooking cream out there, a tablespoon or two would do. 

But I find using coconut milk and reducing into a thick consistency is how you make a good mushroom gravy. 

 Utensils and appliances

All you need to make this quick dish is your favorite skillet or a medium-sized pan.

Storing – use glass containers with a lid to refrigerate as plastic will stain due to curry powder. consume within 48 hours.

Freezing- avoid freezing.

Heating- you can either warm it over a stove or use the microwave. make sure to use a microwave cover as the curry will splatter.

Stop food waste by- goes well with any type of morning breakfast eggs and potatoes.
