Mushroom or Khumb Do Pyaaza is a popular Indian Dish which uses Onions twice, hence the name. It has flavourful mushrooms cooked in aromatic spices in thick gravy. It tastes incredible with Roti or Lacha Parantha.

I am as it is a die hard fan of mushrooms. for me all mushroom dishes are special, be it Mushroom Lasagna, Cream of Mushroom Soup, Mushroom and Green Onions Pasta, Italian Frittata with Mushrooms and Spinach or Indo Chinese style Chili Mushrooms (I know that’s a lot of mushrooms :P)

Coming back to the topic of Mushroom Do Pyaaza. I always had this dish in a fancy restaurant, where you cant have enough. So I decided to do this at home . I followed Ambikaji’s recipe. She is a fellow blogger like me and cooks very delicious food. I made a few minor tweak to her original recipe and it was a delight.

Directions:

1. Chop Onions, Garlic , Ginger, tomatoes and gently slit Green Chilies. Also cut two onions in large pieces and roughly separate their layers.Keep aside.
