Mushroom Matar is another delectable dish  which  has a high nutrient value .It is one of the dishes listed in the Menu for almost all the Indian Restaurants and most liked one after the Paneer dishes.Their are enormous recipes on Mushroom available for different cuisines, coz its such a versatile ingredient used in Pizzas, rolls, salads,soups,curries, rice.. used as sauteed, stuffed or fried.Though i like to use them with spinach and even i love them  in my Tofu curry..I think there are a lot more  recipes which i need to try with mushrooms hmmm so till then you guys try this tested one and i  will experiment more on it and come up with more tried and tasted recipes..:)
