This is from the book Delicious Diabetes Low cal recipes book by Tarla Dalal. Mushrooms are my Mom's favorite veggies and she's diabetic. Mushrooms(khumb) taste so nice this way. This dish is rich in protein, calcium, Vitamin A and iron. Use the low fat milk recipe for diabetics and low fat yoghurt recipe for diabetics posted separately. Enjoy!
