ABOUT Chowli Bean Mushroom Curry RECIPE

Some combinations that we think won't go well, will actually be very good and we would feel it was worth the try. This combination of chowli beans and mushroom turned out so wonderful that I regretted for not trying earlier. Chowli beans are so easy to cook. They have a slightly smoky flavor and they combined well with mushrooms. This goes well with roti and rice.
