Mushroom coconut milk curry – Mushroom stew – Kalan thengapal curry

This curry is a mild one and goes well with Appam, Idiyappam and rice. You can also have it like soup. The mildly sweet taste of the coconut milk adds taste to the curry and it is so soothing. You can also add potatoes along with the mushroom but to keep simple I have done with mushrooms and it tastes amazing.
