Mushroom – Capsicum Gravy

Mushrooms was one of the favorite things to eat when I was growing up. I haven’t been using them much lately. Last week I saw a pack of beautiful pack of mushrooms and I impulsively bought it. I wanted to make something different. I prepared this spicy Mushroom – capsicum gravy. It was so good, V sent a message to my family whatsapp group saying “the best bhaji with chapati in the history of the universe” lol.
I thought that deserves a post on the blog!.

Clean and cut mushrooms and coriander stems.
