Tirali Mushroom Stroganoff   1 comment

Ever since I got a chance to try Russian Cuisine in Seattle with its distinct sour & spicy flavors, I wanted to make Stroganoff Sauce. Here is my take on the delicious brown sauce with mushrooms, yogurt, soy, tamarind, vinegar & paprika. I like it with Pasta but you can very well try it with wild rice. Tastes amazing and for a change does not involve any basil, tomato or cheese!

Serves 2


200-250 gm Al Dentè Tirali Pasta (Fusili works as well)
1 tsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Butter
1 tsp freshly chopped Cilantro (or ½ tsp Dried Cilantro)
½ tsp Pepper
½ tsp Chili Flakes
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Soy Sauce
1 tsp Tamarind Paste
1 tsp White Wine Vinegar (substitute with any other variety)
3-4 drops Tabasco Sauce  (or ½ tsp Chili Sauce)
1 cup Vegetable Stock
3 Tbsp Creamy Yogurt
A pinch Dry Mango Powder (Amchoor)
1 Clove (ground)
Salt to taste
8-10 medium White or Crimini Mushrooms (sliced ¼” thick)
1 medium Onion (coarsely chopped)
2-3 cloves Garlic (minced)

-: Recipe :-

  1. In a nonstick pan, add Olive Oil and saute Garlic & Onion till they get translucent, for about 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, boil the Pasta till it is Al Dentè, drain water and keep it aside till sauce is ready.
  3. Add Chili Flakes, Paprika & Pepper to the onions and stir for a minute to roast properly.
  4. Add Mushrooms, Butter & Salt and cook for about 5 minutes till mushrooms get soft.
  5. Add in Vegetable Stock, Soy Sauce, Tamarind Paste, Vinegar, Tabasco, Dry Mango Powder & ground Clove and bring to boil.
  6. Simmer the sauce until it thickens and then add yogurt after turning off the heat.
  7. Mix the pasta with sauce and sprinkle with Cilantro & Paprika for garnish.
  8. Enjoy the Ultimate Experience 🙂
