Mushroom Tikka Masala

Here is another ofrecipe  Mushrooms,the Mushroom Tikki  Masala. Husband loves mushrooms and has a requests to prepare mushrooms once in a while.

Not being obsessed with mushrooms like my husband, I still agree to prepare, because, I get to post it on the blog.

So, double WIN for me :-).

Anyway, I’ve tried several recipes using Mushrooms and this one has a thick gravy just like Mushroom Matar Miloni, but has a different taste and the Mushroom peices are not cut into peices, so you are going to love it if you too love mushroom.

For everyone else, who is like me, the gravy can be enjoyed just like any other veg gravy.
