Mushroom dishes are so popular these days for the reason being that it is good from the health point of view and also the favorite of the younger generation.  In my young days i had neither  heard of these dishes in the restaurants nor at homes, other than those naturally available button mushrooms during the rainy season for a couple of weeks.  Now mushrooms are available through out the year and a variety of dishes in most of the restaurants too.  I have already put up  Mushroom Almond rice, mushroom masala, Alambe ambat,Mushroom-peas masala (Restaurant style) and a few more and today i would like to put up this simple dish yet a very yummy one too!!!  This dish is good combo for chapati and roti.

    Nice! I normally use only onions, garlic and a touch of butter. However, this version sounds great. Do you think I could use crushed peanuts instead of powder? It would lend a bit of crunch!
