Kerala Style Mushroom curry



A favorite curry from my childhood , I started eating mushrooms at a very young age. the fact that we had the good ones back in our garden and grandma knew how to differ the good ones and the poisonous ones made it easy . I have heard it usually grow after the first rain and i still remember seeing it all fo a sudden when you look outside the morning after the first rain. Later we started buying it from the vegetable market , where it is available year round , from the local farms and seminaries..

An awesome side dish with chapati , this is a regular in my Nj home too...

WoW! The curry looks drool-worthy! All of your dishes are.Remember when I asked your permission to try your Beet Raitha? It was fabulous! But guess what? I ruined it a little bit by adding too much of them and they changed the color of the raitha. I promise to exactly follow the recipe next time I make it and will do a post to do justice to that awesome raitha dear!
