These are addictive! This is also popularly served in hotels with the name - Tava Dhingri. Very popular with those who love to eat mushrooms, like myself, but, few know how to cook this up:) A real tasty Indian dry vegetable worth every effort!

This is a great way to present mushrooms. I do not make onions, ginger, garlic and nuts into a paste. I just chop them well.

These are delicious! Lots of nice spicy 'stuff' but not too much that it overwhelms the delicate flavour of the mushrooms. I used a paprika/cayenne mixture as my 'red chili.' I pureed the onion with the garlic and ginger first, and then cooked it, but otherwise made them as described. I will make these again, for sure!

Very good even though I didn't have any cashews on hand and i just crushed almonds. I have made this dish a couple times now.
