Spicy Mushroom Masala Recipe | Side Dish For Roti

Spicy Mushroom Masala Recipe

Its been a long time since I posted a recipe. Been quite busy for couple of weeks and didn’t get time to click pictures. Finally, I am here with a spicy and yummy mushroom masala recipe. Mushroom is our favorite and it will be in our menu atleast once a week. I saw this mushroom masala recipe in one of the tv shows and found it very simple and quick. So tried it and it turned out super tasty dish. Since then, I used to make it very often expecially for rotis. It also tastes good with rice and dosas too. Adding freshly ground masala gives a real good flavor to the dish. Adding fresh curry leaves is a must for this recipe as it enhances the taste and aroma of the masala.
