Mushroom Masala..


We had this curry few months back in a veg. thali and we really loved it. I tried to imitate the curry at home and it turned out to be quite similar to the one we had in that thali. And since then it has been added in my kitchen’s menu 😛 Here follows the recipe..


Button Mushroom – 2 cups (each cut to 4 pcs.)
Onion – 1 small (diced)
Bell pepper – 1/2 cup (diced)

Fennel seeds – 1 pinch
Kasuri methi – 2 tsp
Red chilli powder – 1/2 tsp (or according to your liking)
