Spicy Yogurt Based Mushroom curry !!!


Today’s recipes is my favorite spicy yogurt based mushroom curry. I love mushroom, so once in a week I make sure to prepare it. The recipes mostly I use to make with mushrooms are biriyani, soups, salad, sauteed mushroom, fried rice etc., (shortly I will post). Mushroom is the nutritious fungus, 80 percent of moisture, antioxidants, carbs & protein. This is really helpful for weight management.

Here, I made it with yogurt / fresh curd. Yogurt acts as thickening agent to curries, this is a really good substitute for heavy cream / flour, also helps to bring down the acidity and makes the curry rich, flavor & tasty. In most of my curries I love to use yogurt / fresh curd (homemade / low fat), while cooking with yogurt, don’t add it directly on high flame, this may lead to curdle the yogurt. First beaten the yogurt nicely, add it finally & cook it on sim for last 3- 4 minutes. This is an exquisite recipe goes well with pulav, biriyani, idly, dosa, parathas etc.,
