Khumb Masala / Mushroom Masala

Another Mushroom curry which is a lighter and healthier version of my previous post; tastes really good with Indian flat breads or variety rice which can be included in your everyday meal…. I tried this from my childhood friend’s blog which is apparently one of the most tried out dishes from her collection of delicious recipes… so here is another vegetarian recipe for you to try during lent.....
