Mushroom Masala curry (Amma Style)



Why I wrote Amma style....,well it is my Ammas style of the naadan masala curry...,a regular during our growing up years...Masalacurry..
The kashnam(pieces if translated literally... But means the vegetables that make the body of the curry) could be 'any English vegetable' according to Amma...so that means..cauliflower,carrot,potato,capsicum beans,mushroom,peas etc etc...
I am itching to try a non veg or at least an egg version soon...
I am so glad that my kids are hooked to proper naadan (simple village style) cooking and are smiling wide,when they know it is masala curry boiling away smile emoticon
This simple curry is yummy with rice,dosa,idli,aapam and puttu....
Wide spectrum eh?;)
