Mushroom Korma-Mushroom gravy Indian-Mushroom masala

Mushrooms have plenty of health benefits.Though they contain more than 80% water, they are a good source of minerals and vitamins especially vitamin B and D. They are high in anti oxidants and low in calories. After I tasted mushroom dishes in my friend's house, it has become my favorite and also a regular feature in my kitchen. Halloween falls on October 31st, so I decided to present this mushroom dish with Halloween as the theme. Today we will learn how to make mushroom kurma following this easy recipe.
