Matar Mushroom – How to Make Matar Mushroom


Matar Mushroom is not just tasty but also extremely healthy. Matar and mushrooms are both very nutritious and flavourful ingredients, plus when you cook them with a luscious onion tomato masala and powdered spices great taste is guaranteed. The addition of cashewnut paste does increase the calories but it gives it a slight nutty creamy sweetness which I love. I like eating matar mushrooms with simple roti or plain steamed rice.
