A very delicious dish in which mushroom is flavored in spicy- tangy semi dry gravy. A kadai is used for cooking this dish, hence the name Mushroom Kadai. Nevertheless , it can be cooked in any pot or sauce pan; it still tastes delicious. In this recipe, I have used Roasted red masala powder (as kadai masala powder) which is always available in my kitchen . Alternatively , I have also mentioned the spice requirements just enough for this recipe.
