Karahi Mushroom

Sorry for not posting anything from past 18 months..I had some personal reason for not writing anything but I am really grateful for your support and encouragement to start my blog again... :) 

Mushroom is one of our family's favorite vegetable. A new study shows eating mushroom will help you to lose weight. Mushrooms are low calorie food and are an excellent source of B vitamins, minerals, potassium and carbohydrate with absence of fat and sodium.. Including mushroom in your daily diet could be useful in regulating blood sugar..Mushrooms are standard fare in Asian culture but not very common in everyday Indian cooking.
I usually stick to cooked mushrooms. They are higher in nutrients than raw mushrooms and I don't like the taste of raw mushrooms. 

If you are still skeptical about eating mushroom then try this recipe. It has semi-dry gravy with the prominent flavor of tomatoes and more on the spicier side because of the red chilies.Kadai mushroom has spicy gravy but if you want to adjust spice according to your taste you can do it.. and if you don't like mushroom you can substitute with paneer but I recommend  you to try  mushroom at-least once.. :)
