Mushroom + Padavalanga Thoran


A favorite combo of thoran from my childhood. Amma usually makes this combo , to use left over Snake gourd from making Avial or Sambar . My dad hates padavalanga unless and until it is paired with something else.Preparing a Padavalanga thoran  with the family favorite mushroom makes it a winner all the time.
