Mushroom!! I am a self proclaimed biggest mushroom fan. This fact is not unknown. My blog is an evidence of this as it is full of mushroom and bread recipes. Not to mention there are so many more in the pipeline ;). My love for mushroom has grown leaps and bounds over years. This recipe of Kadhai Mushroom literally translating to Mushroom in a wok in a classic Indian recipe which is made with freshly ground spices which makes all the difference.
