Mushroom malai matar

Button mushrooms and green peas cooked in cream and spices.
Once after a grocery shopping, when we reached home and was about to prepare my lunch, saw this packet of mushrooms which I dint buy but my son has dropped in the basket without my knowledge. And then I had to use it in one or the other dish of mine. Its not that I regretted bringing mushroom at home as it is one of the richest source of protein, but just went into a jungle of thought of what could be made now. Then, this combination clicked where I thought of mixing mushroom with matar (green peas) and malai (cream). Surprisingly, it came out great and was superlative in taste and aroma….You may also want to try out and experience it yourself…Trust me, for vegetarians, it would be a feast time with this recipe......
Here is how you get it.....
