Kadai Mushroom

This is a very simple and quick dish, prepared in tangy tomato gravy with button mushrooms and capsicum. The process of cooking mushrooms in fresh tomatoe puree brings a pleasent savory taste to the dish. No wonder, if you get reminded of this dish whenever you see a pack of clean n fresh white button mushrooms in the supermarket. This sabji gives a long lasting aftertaste and can be relished with roti or paratha, though tastes best with butter naan.

I dint add any cream to the sabji to keep it low calorie, but if you are preparing it for the guests/party, you must add fresh cream to finish the sabji to impart a rich and thick texture to the gravy.
