Mushroom Masala Recipe/Mushroom Masala Gravy

Like Paneer dishes Mushrooms are also cooked once in a while.But unlike Paneer there is cleaning part included in  Mushrooms which is a bit time consuming.This time my Hubby bought some canned Mushrooms and I prepared this Mushroom masala curry.Recently we had this Mushroom Masala from a Restaurant.So tried re creating the same at home.The gravy was licked completely by everyone,meaning all of them really enjoyed it to the core.

As I have mentioned it was canned mushrooms,there was not much of cleaning.I washed it well and then drained it putting it in a strainer for sometime.This gravy tastes best with Chapati,Naan even Ghee rice and Jeera rice.Now off to the recipe.
