Mushrooms are called khumb in Hindi. They are mildly flavoured vegetables that absorb other flavours beautifully to make a tempting dish each time. Whether it is with tomatoes and oregano or spinach, onions and garlic, they make a delectable dish in all combinations.
This recipe is mildly flavoured with coriander and an array of delicate spices to create a lip smacking dish that is rich in protein, calcium, vitamin A and iron. It is an unusual delicacy to enjoy, especially if you’re entertaining.
