Mushroom theeyal

  Bored of having same mushroom masala/ kuruma at home?? Try this...
   Theeyal is a keralan dish, with roasted coconut scrappings, shallots(sambhar vengayam) and tamarind extract forming as base.  Traditionally theeyal is cooked with drumstick, brinjal and prawns, here mushroom is used.

Ingredients required

For theeyal masala
  • One cup of grated coconut
  • 3-4 red chilly
  • 1 tsp dhanya
  • 1/2 tsp jeera
  • 1/2 tsp peppercorn
  • 5-6 shallots
Other ingredients are
  • 6 tsp thick tamarind extract
  • One cup of chopped mushrooms
  • 3 tsp coconut  oil
  • 1/2 tsp rai
  • Bunch of curryleaves
  • 2 red chilly, broken into half
  • half cup of finely chopped onions
  • 4-5 garlic cloves, finely chopped


At first, dry roast all ingredients under theeyal masala.  Thus roasted coconut gratings should be dark brown in colour, this will take 20-30 minutes. 

Grind this and keep alone.  In a kadaai, heat oil, add rai.  Wait till it splutters, and then add curry leaves and red chillies.

This is followed by adding onions, garlic, imli extract  and mushrooms

When mushroom gets half cooked add theeyal masala, add salt to taste.  Cover and cook till done

Mushroom theeyal is now ready to serve!!!
