Kadai Mushroom Gravy | Restaurant Style Mushroom Recipe

Kadai Mushroom Gravy
Kadai muhroom gravy is a nice aromatic, flavourful and very spicy gravy made using a special freshly ground kadai masala. As a spicy lover i always prefer to choose vegetable or mushroom kadai masala whenever we go out for dinner. I love my side dish to be spicy than sweet. This can be made either as a gravy or dry. Try this spicy kadai masala at your home and post your feedback.
