Mushroom curry and awards

This curry made similar to the chicken curry.This tastes like chicken too!!The only addition is methi leaves during tadaka/talimpu becoz my mother told me that it will taste more with addition of methi leaves.You can add fenugreek/methi leaves in tadaka in any curry ,it tastes too god.Fenugreek leaves are very good for health check Fenugreek (methi) for health and beauty.Once you studied these benifits i am sure you will definetely use fenugreek in your daily curries.The curry will be good with either rice or chapathi's.
