Restaurant Style Mushroom Dry Masala


Mushrooms are known as "The Taste of Earth". Healthy, versatile mushrooms are an excellent addition to your plate. They’re fat-free, low in calories-about 20 calories per one cup sliced—and high in vitamins and minerals. Today I am uploading my most favorite mushroom recipe. I believe, it tastes better than any non-veg dry fry I have ever made.
