Mushroom Peas Masala

This is another dish that was introduced to me by my aunt. I had this in her house in Delhi, when we visited them and she made it again when she visited us and I was hooked on to this taste. Of course mushroom is a hot favorite and no one needs to force me to have some and I'm more than ready to try some new dish with it!
This goes well with roti/paratha or even with dosai. We simply loved it and I liked it even better that it's such a simple dish to make during early morning rush!

Mushroom Peas Masala

1. For cream, you can use malaai (pal aadai). If it's too thick, just whiz it in the mixie once and then add it to the gravy. Or you can use store bought cream.
2. The amount of peas you add is optional. You can add anywhere between 1/2 cup to 1 cup peas. I used fresh peas.

Until next time,
