Mushroom Masala

I get to learn many recipes from Supriya – my colleague and friend. Many a times she gets tasty food in her lunch box which we all relish. We both often discuss about food and what new dishes to prepare on the weekends. This recipe was given to me by her and I have prepared it N number of times.

It tastes very nice just like any restaurant dish. Thanks Supriya for your recipe.
