Spread the Joy!
I know many of you love mushrooms…But in our place this awesome vegetable is treated the same way always…
Like Mushroom Masala, Pepper Mushroom, Chettinad Mushroom or used as a stuffing or sautéd along with onions…..blah…blah…blah…I feel a little bored with these dishes…
One day I bought a packet of button mushrooms from a near by super market called Lynns which is located in our small city Nagercoil…And I was thinking what new dish can I try with that…Suddenly this one came to mind…
I can tell you it is such a spicy dish which is perfect with rice or roti..It is a typical South Indian dish..I got the inspiration for this dish from my mum who used to make potato in the same way..
The whole spices are roasted along with coconut ground and added into the curry…
I want to give you a warning…
Your house will smell so good while you roast the spices and make this curry..Your loved one will surely come near you and ask “WOW..What Magic are you doing in the kitchen..This smell makes me Hungry” like my sister said…
I hope you will try this…
So no more delay here you go for the recipe..
