Mushrooms now play a vital role in the menu even among the vegetarian few. I have already put up mushroom masala, mushroom in coconut gravy, and today I am putting up this one pot meal version – mushroom fried rice. I make this mild, and have a gravy side dish like Vegetable Kurm to turn up the spice levels!

What you need to have:

1. Chopped mushroom – 2 cups

2. Cooked Basumati rice – 2 cups

3. Grated carrot – 1 cup
