  Serves 3-4

Time taken: 1 hour

Good to remember:

1. Use fresh mushroom for the dish.  One can even use frozen peas/fresh peas for the dish.

2. I did not have  sufficient time to soak Almonds and hence used cashews which soaks faster.

3. I have not used tomato sauce as it is used in the recipe since i thought it would be too tangy.
