Ground Turkey Mushroom Masala


I make this dish often, since it is a tasty filling for a sandwich. But also goes very well, with rice, or paratta.  


  1. Ground meat, 2.5 pounds. I used lean turkey breast.
  2. Onions, 2 medium, finely chopped
  3. Green pepper (capsicum), 1 medium, chopped
  4. Mushroom, 16oz, finely chopped
  5. Garlic, 4 cloves, minced
  6. Tomatoes, 3, chopped
  7. Pepper powder, 2 tspn
  8. Coriander powder, 2 tbpsn
  9. Turmeric powder – ½ tspn
  10. Oil, 2 tbspn
  11. Mustard seeds – 1 tspn
  12. Cilantro leaves, 1 bunch, cleaned, chopped after removing stem.


  1. Heat oil in a vessel, then add mustard seeds. After they splutter, add the chopped onion, and garlic.
  2. Sauté the onion till it is brown. Then add the mushrooms, cook it till most of the water released from the mushrooms have evaporated. Then add the green pepper.
  3. Cook the mixture for 2-3 more minutes. Now add the ground turkey, and cook it till there is no pink color in the meat.
  4. Add turmeric, and coriander powder, to the cooked ground meat.   
  5. Add chopped tomatoes, and let it cook till all the water from the tomatoes seeps out. Add pepper powder, and stir it into the ground turkey mix, and let it cook.
  6. At this point, I add a little oil, and fry the meat a little; it gives the dish an extra punch!
  7. Towards the end, add the chopped cilantro leaves.
