ABOUT Mushroom Masala RECIPE

Mushroom Masala is a mildly spiced button mushroom curry which is an onion-tomato based gravy with a very simple and easy to follow recipe . I have also used capsicum also which complements the button mushrooms well. Adding some fresh cream makes the gravy creamy and rich. Do enjoy my mushroom masala recipe and leave your comments.
