Mushroom Peas Masala

White Mushrooms are high in protein, vitamin D and Vitamin B 12. White Mushrooms are low in

 calories and sugars. Mushrooms are best for those who want to start a plant based diet. Today I will

 be preparing Mushroom Peas Masala which goes very well with any mild pulao or roti. This recipe

 goes to week 4 day 3 of Blogging Marathon 13 under the theme " Protein Rich food ".

Cashew nuts 10

Chili powder 1/2 tsp

Garam masala 1/4 tsp

Chopped cilantro 1/4 cup

Oil 1 tbsp


In a pan heat 1 tsp oil and add chopped white mushrooms, cook till they are 80% cooked.

Meanwhile in  a sauce pan boil water, add green peas and cook for 5 -6 minutes.
