Peas & Mushroom Masala

Masala mmmm yes all might be wondering why am I posting too many masala. Thsi is because our family cannot eat without masala for rice. We love any kind of masala, it should be spicy. I generally make a poriyal or kootu, a masala and a sambar or rasam or kurma. Whenever there is no masala in the meals we order in restaurants the general statement from my husband is “oh no” there is “no masala”, am not getting meals here anymore.

Instead of getting bored with few regular masala recipes I try to venture by adding more combinations with the available vegetables at home.

Hope you all will try and let me know how much you liked it.
