Sharing with you today - recipe of Indian Potato Curry with Green Peas and Morels (Dried Mushroom Variety). Morels are generally available dried but if you can find fresh that will be even better. Morels have earthy and meaty texture and when paired with curry; Morels are very succulent and tasty. Starch in potatoes will thicken the gravy and sweetness of peas will compliment spicy curry. I have kept spice level medium in ingredients, but if you like curries more spicy feel free to increase curry powder and/or add 1/2 tsp of red pepper powder for extra kick.
