Dry Mushroom Curry

Earlier I have shared with you a recipe with Mushroom, called ‘Kadai Mushroom’. However, I had tried the dry mushroom even before that. In fact Dry mushroom was my first stint ever with mushroom. It is such a simple dish that you need just a pinch of cumin seed as for the spices. Even if you are not a great fan of mushroom and do not make it often, you will love this preparation. This happened with me and the mushroom curry is a nice addition to my kitty of vegetarian foods.
