Indian Curry Recipes

Kadai Mushroom

Today I have with me is some mushrooms so thought of making some unique dish which will be little spicy but tangy and a side dish for any rice variety. Then came to my mind that my family and I loved Kadai Paneer so why not an experiment with Mushroom so made Kadai Mushroom and to my surprise this dish was awesome. I felt that Kadai masala suited more on Mushrooms than on Paneer. Mushrooms with a combination of capsicum cooked in North Indian masalas makes the mushrooms taste very delicious as mushroom has the quality of absorbing spices into itself.
