Ginger Mushroom Curry

Seriously, I was considering to not post anything today. I really don’t know… I am not in a mood, maybe not in a mood to write or tap anything, rather than not post a recipe! I guess I am passing through a dry phase now, where my mind has just given up on me and is not ready to give in to my requirement for some random ramblings!!! So I was thinking not to post anything today, because I don’t have anything to talk about. But somehow, I cant! This blog seems to have become a part of me now – should I call it dedication or obsession, I really don’t know! I really don’t want it to be the second for sure, to reach a stage where it will dictate a lot of things. So I better call it dedication – that sounds like a really mild word, as far as I am concerned! πŸ˜‰


Mushroom is one vegetable I love to eat, but then was never confident of cooking it myself. The only mushroom dish that I have tried making and loved it was this stir fry that I had made along with chicken in it. As usual, on one of the veg-days, my browsing on my phone came to the rescue and I found this curry. I just don’t remember the source. πŸ™ I was slightly apprehensive as it has a very gingery taste and was not sure how the men would appreciate it, but thankfully, it was well accepted so here I am sharing it with you! πŸ™‚
