Kadai mushroom | kadai mushroom recipe | side dish for roti

Cooking mushrooms is a new addition in my kitchen as i have never attempted to cook any gravy with mushroom or include in any rice variety. Since kids doesn’t eat mushrooms, even on the pizza topping, i am bit hesitant to try out Mushroom Recipes. But i was getting requests from readers for posting mushroom recipes. So finally i bought a small box of button mushrooms and thank you Nags for helping me out in choosing the variety of mushroom. But to my great surprise, kids loved this Kadai mushroom and i am making this the third time in the last one month. Check out my mushroom masala, mushroom pulao and mushroom soup recipe.
