Matar Mushroom Recipe

This is unquestionably one of the best accompaniments to rotis. White button mushrooms and fresh green peas are simmered gently in an onion tomato gravy. I cook mushrooms at least once in a week as they are an excellent source of B Vitamins like B1, B2, B3 and B5. Serve with fluffy rotis and don’t forget to whip up some raita. Raita balances the spicy hot curry and keeps your tummy cool. You are definitely going to end up burping in satisfaction.
