Let me confess, I was making mushroom peas curry with only cream and ended up making this wonderful curry. But it was so good that I have already made it three times before this post. I used tomato puree and cream. I used ready made tomato puree. I don’t know the reason but my homemade puree never comes out this red. It always a slightly pink and become red while cooking. Do they use artificial color?  I hate using color in my cooking. its okay if your curry doesn’t look red or whatever but it should taste better.

I also added a pinch of Chat masala ( you can get it at Indian grocery store). If you are in KL then you can find it in Modern store in brickfields or Hanifa near Sogo.  So here is my recipe of delicious cream mushroom curry.
