Mushroom Masala is a North Indian Gravy that goes well with Roti,Naan and even with plain Basmati rice . This is a rich and creamy type of mushroom gravy that is made with the similar method of makhani gravy preparation. I tasted this for first time in a restaurant and replicated in my way. It taste good and more similar. So taught of sharing this here.
