Mushroom 65 is a crispy and tasty dish.It can be had as a starter,snack or as a side dish with Rice,Biryani,Pulao etc.This mushroom 65 is a favorite dish for everyone at my home.Me and my sis tasted this mushroom 65 for the first time in Saravana bhavan hotel.It was so tasty.From then onwards whenever we go out to eat in veg restaurants we used to order this dish for sure.I buy mushroom at least once in two weeks.They have amazing health benefits.After making curry or masala with it I save some mushrooms for 65 or Bhaji because it is so simple to make and it makes an awesome snack for evening especially during winter.Let’s see how I made this 65.
