Mushroom Masala



We are entering the 3rd week of Blogging Marathon edition 65.This week it's going to be gourmet gravies,goes very well with Roti and naan.
My kids love to have roti and naan with some kind of rich gravies for dinner.So I make such type of gravy,weekly once for dinner or lunch..Rest of the days would be a simple dhal or curry to accompany roti as well as rice.
Coming to the recipe it's a rich and flavorful mushroom gravy with butter and cashews.Though the recipe sounds simple,its so creamy.
Since my camera was ran out if charge couldn't take the step wise pictures.Off to the recipe..
