This gravy is close to the kadai paneer recipe and goes well with chapathis or even plain rice and dhal.I confidently wanted to try after trying out kadai paneer and it didnt disappoint us.This is the first time I am trying kadai mushroom masala, I didnt refer to any specific recipe but googled here and there and made up my mind to go with a recipe which is close to the kadai paneer recipe I posted earlier :)
