How to Make Malaysian Mushroom Korma

  • Heat oil in a large, fairly deep pan like a Dutch oven.
  • Add the onions and saute on medium heat until soft and translucent.
  • Add the ginger and garlic and stir for a minute.
  • Add the garam masala and stir to coat with the oil, about a minute.
  • Add the spice paste and stir well.
  • Cook on medium-low heat, stirring frequently to keep the paste from sticking to the bottom.
  • Cook for about 10 minutes or until the paste no longer has a raw smell and taste.
  • Add the yogurt and stir in and cook for a couple more minutes.
  • Add the mushrooms and stir in and add salt.
  • Cook for a few minutes until the mushrooms start to soften and express their juices.
  • Add the potatoes and half the coconut milk.
  • Bring to a boil on medium heat, then continue to simmer for about 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the remaining coconut milk and turn off heat immediately, so the curry does not boil again.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves and, if desired, fried onions.
  • Serve hot with naan or with boiled rice.
