This Mushroom Masala recipe is a typical north Indian style tomato onion Masala Gravy recipe. I like this recipe as it is quick and very easy to cook.You can serve this tasty Mushroom Gravy with chapatti or rice. The only work in this recipe is to nicely roast the Masala for Mushroom Masala Gravy. Whenever you make Gravy take care of roasting the Masala nicely, don’t rush to add vegetables until the Masala is roasted nicely . When the Masala gets cooked it gives very nice aroma and good flavor to your recipe. You can make Kadhai Mushroom Masala dry or in Gravy form.

At home you can make Mushroom Masala with very low calories as compare to restaurant style Kadhai Mushroom Masala . I cook my Mushroom in microwave or in Gravy itself that reduces lots of calories as in restaurant fried Mushrooms are added in Kadhai Mushroom Gravy. You can reduce the quantity of oil to make this Mushroom Masala low in calories. It tastes good even if we cut the calories in this way. Cook your food with lots of love and patience it gives nice taste to food, there is no need to add extra calories to increase the taste J
