Masala means many things in Indian cuisine. It can be a dry spice blend, a wet spice blend or a sauce which can be used to make a dish. This simple Masala sauce works well with any veggies, or baked tofu, soy curls, chickpeas or lentils. Make the sauce creamier with more cashews, creamy + vegan butter to make makhani or butter sauce, tangier with more tomatoes, spicier or milder.
The sauce with mushrooms and peas is a satisfying flavorful meal. I add some spinach or greens as well. In the pictured dish, i also added some chickpeas. Serve over rice or cooked grains, with flabread or over toast for snack or breakfast. Easy and 20 minute active time in the kitchen and then let everything simmer.
Matar mean peas. Use less or more peas. To make the sauce without nuts, use pumpkin seeds or silken tofu or plain unsweetened non dairy yogurt, or full fat coconut milk or coconut cream.
