Methi mushroom

Mushroom is a good source of protein. I cook mushrooms regularly. You can find a number of mushroom recipes in my blog. Mostly I use button mushrooms and baby mushrooms. This recipe is semi gravy type and it goes well with Rice, dal as well as with Indian bread like poori, chapati or Roti.
