Achari Mushroom


We are a family of Mushroom lovers. We make it a point to try any mushroom out in the market. Whenever I get a new variety that I haven't tried before I always end up making a simple caramelized mushroom and if the mushroom is not to our liking I add spices and see what works for us.Now I have a recipe for each type of mushroom we get here in Bay area.Our favorite recipe for Shiitake mushroom or Bella mushroom is this Achari Mushroom curry. The pickle spice that you add to this curry makes it fingerlicking.
