'Bhajee,' the word, is often misunderstood as meaning deep fried as in 'onion bhajee' but the true description would be a fairly dry dish cooked in oil with onion and light spice.
This dish is best cooked in a stir fry pan (non-stick if available) accompanied with a lid.
250g Mushroom (cut into medium slices)
| || 1 Medium Onion (finely chopped) || |
| || 1/2 Small Red Pepper (finely chopped) || |
| || 1/2 Tomato (finely sliced) || |
| || 1/2 tsp Turmeric || |
| || 5 tsp (35g) Mr Huda's Universal Curry Paste|| |
| || 3 tbsp Veg/Olive Oil || |
| || Fresh Coriander (optional)|| |
1. Heat 3 tbsp of oil (moderate heat) in the pan.
2. Add the chopped onions, pepper and the tomato with some salt and cook to soften (stirring regularly).
3. Add the Mr Huda's Universal Curry Paste, and the turmeric and cook for 1-2 mins (stirring regularly).
4. Add the mushrooms and the coriander, stir and then leave to gently simmer (covered) and stirring occasionally for 10-15 mins or until the mushrooms are just cooked (try not to over cook).
TIPS: For a spicier dish, simply add some sliced green chillis with the onions and a little more curry paste.
