  • 8 parathas (homemade or store bought)
  • 250 g portabellini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 cup peas, fresh or frozen
  • ½ cup fresh coriander, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1 fresh chilli, seeds removed and diced
  • 200 g mozzarella cheese, grated
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Ghee or olive oil, for cooking


  • Heat a spoonful of ghee or a drizzle of olive oil in a frying pan. Cook mushrooms with curry powder and season. Once they are golden brown set aside.
  • Blanch peas in boiling water. Drain and place in a large bowl. Mash peas roughly using a fork. Add the coriander, spring onion, fresh chilli and mozzarella. Mix and season.
